I-65 Chase Suspect Arrested In Alabama, New Video Released

CREATED Jun 16, 2014

BRENTWOOD, Tenn. - An armed robbery suspect who was involved in a chase down Interstate 65 Friday night has been arrested.

The Maury County Sheriff's department said Brandon Richards was taken into custody Monday in Montgomery County, Alabama by U.S. Marshals.

He was last seen three days ago in the Bear Creek Pike area of Maury County. Richards ran from the car he was in after officials used spike strips to bring the vehicle to a stop. Also inside the car was 21-year-old Carolyn Nell Hall.  She was taken into custody at that time.

Hall was booked into the Williamson County Jail on $26,500 on charges of evading arrest, driving without a license and improper display of a license plate.

The chase started over 20 miles away in Brentwood when an officer pulled the vehicle over for a traffic stop.

While the officer was conducting a records check , the vehicle sped away heading south on I-65. The records check showed Richards was wanted in connection with a home invasion in Alabama. He was also wanted for receiving stolen property.

Police video of that chase was released Monday. You can watch it here.
