The chase originated in Headland. Headland Police Chief Investigator Watson clocked a vehicle northbound on Highway 431 at 91 MPH. Investigator Watson turned around, activated his emergency lights and siren.
The person under the blue lights does not make the decision but the person in front of the blue lights makes the decision not to stop and run.
As Headland Police proceeded north the chase was joined by Henry County Sheriff Department and Abbeville Police.
The chase continued into Barbour County. Law Enforcement from Eufaula Police and Barbour County Sheriff Department joined in.
The suspect went onto the golf course then back onto Highway 431. The suspect hit side streets in Eufaula.
Reports are a Henry County Sheriff Deputy took the opportunity and did a pit manuever on the suspect vehicle. That move knocked the suspect vehicle into a Eufaula Police vehicle. And the suspect or suspects were taken into custody.
The reports of multiple accidents, right now the only confirmed is when Henry County Pit the suspect and they hit the Eufaula Police vehicle.
Reports the suspect started complaining of being injured. He was checked out at the hospital in Eufaula.
UPDATED @ 5:26 PM
The vehicle pictures is the suspect vehicle that was chased from Headland into Eufaula.
The suspect is identified as Errol Wayne Scott. This subject was arrested several months ago by Abbeville Police Chief Noel Vanlandingham.
When Chief Vanlandingham told Scott he was under arrest, the fight was on. In a major physical struggle and fight Chief Vanlandingham physically fought for about 11 straight minutes. Reports are Scott withstood being tazed three times before backup arrived and Scott was taken into custody.
Tactically and physically Chief Valnlandingham can hang. And that was proven with Scott who is reported to be a handful to handle.
But once a officer tells someone you are "under arrest". The option of going with the officer no longer exists. Just a matter of "how" the suspect wants to go. And in Scott's case it is after a brawl or chase.
More than likely Scott will remain in the Henry County Jail with his original bonds being revoked.

In review of the Alabama Unified Court System in Henry County, the defendant Errol Wayne Scott was charged on February 17, 2019 with Making A Terrorist Threat, Assault 2nd Degree, Resisting Arrest, and Harassment.
The Making A Terrorist Threat resulted from allegations Scott told Chief Vanlandingham" I'm going to kill you".
The Assault 2nd degree resulted from allegations Scott "bite the inner knee area" of Chief Vanlandingham.
The Resisting Arrest resulted in the allegations of Scott's refusal to submit to the arrest and an 11 minute fight when Chief Vanlandingham told Scott he was under arrest. Scott is described in some court papers as 5'07, 275 pounds.
The Harassment resulted in the allegation of Scott standing in a front yard yelling to Chief Vanlandingham " I'm going to see my ------- daughter one way or the -------- other".
Scott was arrested on February 17, 2019.

As a result of the sucking of grant money SPLC and others caused Scott to be released on his own signature bond.
