Dramatic Traffic Stop Leads to High Speed Chase

A man is accused of hitting two officers as he fled from a traffic stop in North Georgia Wednesday night.


According to a news release sent friday morning from the Calhoun, Ga. police department, it was about 7:30 pm Wednesday when an unidentified officer stopped Tomious Montiwan Lindsey from Stone Mountain for going 47 in a 35 mph zone. The officer said Lindsey acted extremely nervous and he was asked to get out of the car.


Lindsey refused to allow the officer to search the car, but a K-9 was used. The officer said the dog "alerted," and the officer then asked Lindsey's passenger, Charmaine Christine Conyers, to step out.


As he was leading her back to the patrol car, he said Lindsey broke and ran, getting back into his car. As they tried to stop him, they said he struck the two officers with the car and fled, leaving Conyers behind.  The officers were not seriously hurt.


A pursuit through Calhoun began, exceeding 80 mph in the city. Lindsey made his way to I-75 Southbound where Calhoun Police were joined by Gordon County Sheriff Deputies and Georgia State Patrol.  They say he finally lost control of his car and crashed in Bartow County where he was arrested by Calhoun Police. They say they found about eight pounds of marijuana in the trunk of the car.


Lindsey faces a laundry list of charges including speeding, improper passing on left, passing in a no passing zone, reckless driving, failure to yield while crossing intersection, failure to stop for stop sign, failure to obey traffic control devise possession of marijuana more than 1 ounce, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, hit and run, feeing and attempting to elude, failure to wear seatbelts, failure to maintain lane, aggravate assault on police officer (2 counts) and obstruction of an officer (2 counts).


Conyers is charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute.
