Two Chattanooga men were arrested on multiple charges after a police chase last Saturday. Shawn Brollie Bailey, 39, and Josiah David Benibo, 21, were riding in an Oldsmobile on Norcross Road when police say they were involved in a shootout with another vehicle. Bailey was driving.
As the two vehicles reached DuPont Parkway from Hixson Pike, they passed Officer David Huggins, who was in his police car.
Officer Huggins turned on his lights and attempted to stop Bailey, but Bailey cut around him and proceeded onto DuPont Parkway.
Officer Rodney Brown also attempted to stop Bailey and Benibo, but he said Bailey tried to hit his car. At the same time, he said Benibo started shooting at him.
Bailey and Benibo continued driving across the C.B. Robinson Bridge, staying in the emergency lane. As police chased them, Benibo also began to throw objects out of the window.
The chase went on over Amnicola Highway and then onto Highway 153. Finally, Bailey drove to his residence on Skyview Drive and stopped.
He and Benibo were both charged with aggravated assault, felony evading arrest, and reckless endangerment.
Bond for each was set at $10,000.
