    Update: Suspect dies following flight in stolen car, struggle with trooper
    By Press-Register staff
    March 03, 2010, 8:32AM
    MOBILE, Ala. -- A suspect fleeing a stolen vehicle that had been pursued by an Alabama State Trooper into a Mobile residential neighborhood early today has died following a foot chase and struggle with the trooper, according to authorities.

    Trooper spokesman Cpl. Steve Smith said investigators are unsure how the man died, and are awaiting autopsy results.

    He said the man didn't have identification on him, so his name could not be released.

    A media release from the Department of Public Safety provides the following description of the events:

    "At approximately 12:40 a.m. Wednesday a state trooper attempted to stop a vehicle for speeding on Schillinger Road at U.S. 98 in Mobile County. The trooper ran a check of the tag and learned that the vehicle, a 2005 Chevrolet Avalanche, had been reported stolen from Prichard late Tuesday night. The suspect failed to yield to the trooper, who pursued the fleeing vehicle. After a brief pursuit, the vehicle turned onto Howell's Ferry Road and then into a residential neighborhood. The suspect stopped and ran from the vehicle. A struggle ensued. Mobile Police responded to the scene, EMS was called, and the suspect was transported to Providence Hospital in Mobile, where he was pronounced dead. The suspect has not been identified. The trooper received superficial injuries."


    The Alabama Bureau of Investigation is investigating the incident. The Department of Public Safety also has initiated an internal inquiry conducted by the agency's Office of Inspections.


    I will update as it hits the papers. BT

    If anyone withing 100 miles of the chase had a taser, that'll take the blame.

    He sure showed them that he didn't have to ID himself to no cop.

    Sounds like once again, another insensitive, and flagrant case of police brutality. He should have never talked to the police, nothing good ever comes from it. :whistling:

    Dang it. Late to the party, so someone else gets the door prize.

    Anyone want to take bets on drugs in the guy's system? Specifically, drugs that start with the letter "c" and end with the letters "ocaine".

    Well the fight ended up being in some lady's backyard. She called 911 and told them to get someone out there because "the officer needs help now".
    2nd hand info I am getting from the neighborhood, she says the guy was calwing at the troopers Taser and gun.

    Local PD arrived and helped get guy cuffed, he was still fighting at that point.
