A man who led police on a wild chase on Jan. 12 has been apprehended in Ooltewah.
Kenny Lynn McCulloch, 30, of 8347 Wild Fig Lane, Ooltewah, faces a slew of charges.
In the Jan. 12 incident, a deputy saw a blue older-model Dodge pickup truck avoid the intersection of Bonny Oaks Drive and Lee Highway by going through the Mapco parking lot. The deputy got behind the vehicle, but it fled.
It traveled at speeds in excess of 100 miles per hour on the chase that wound up in Georgia. Authorities said the driver darted in and out of traffic and across multiple lanes numerous times, putting the lives of many motorists in danger.
The Georgia Patrol later stopped the pickup. Whitney Yarber said her boyfriend, McCulloch, had picked her up earlier in the evening. She said he fled because he has active warrants out of Hamilton County.
It was learned that the pickup truck had been stolen out of Collegedale on Jan. 7.
McCulloch's driver's license has been revoked indefinitely, it was stated.
Law enforcement responded on Sunday to Rhinehart Road on a tip that McCulloch was driving a black Ford Ranger on that road.
McCulloch was spotted at 3919 Rhinehart Road with the Ranger. He immediately took off on foot.
A pursuit led through several yards, over some fences, across Pattentown Road and into some woods near Jameson Drive. Officers were able to tackle McCulloch and take him into custody.
It was found that the Ranger had been stolen out of Ringgold, Ga. Items reported stolen with the truck were still inside.
McCulloch is charged with three counts of evading arrest, theft of property, theft of property over $1,000, theft of property over $2,500, theft of property over $30,000, domestic assault, improper passing, reckless driving, seat belt violation, bumper law violation, violation of the registration law, two counts of driving on a revoked license, reckless endangerment and reckless driving.
