GREENE COUNTY, Ga. — A police chase that hit speeds of over 100 mph on a Georgia freeway and put the lives of other drivers in danger was caught on police dash cam video.
Authorities linked the suspects in a Porsche stolen out of Gwinnett County to at least two gas station burglaries.
Greene County Sheriff Donnie Harrison said police dash cam video shows the pursuit reach speeds of over 100 mph early Monday morning on Interstate 20 westbound, through Greene and Morgan counties.
Harrison said an officer put down spike strips, which deflated tires on the Porsche.
“Once we deploy them out in the road, they expand,” Harrison said.
The suspects eventually bailed out of the car, but it kept rolling and eventually hit a police car and caught fire.
Harris said Michael Cornelius Clark, 27, was the driver of the car. The other two, Gregory Swinson, 20, Khadricquez Sheffield were passengers, police officials said.
The three are suspected of breaking into two gas station convenience stores in Taliaferro County and one in Greene County and attempting a break-in at a second place in Greene County.
Harrison said several things were found inside the Porsche, including a safe, a cash box, another metal box and 500 packs of cigarettes.
