UPDATE: Chatsworth man arrested after car pursuit
UPDATE: Murray County Sheriff's Office arrested Billy Williams and Kimberly Fulmer on August 8. Kimberly Fulmer was in the passenger seat and Billy Williams was behind the wheel of a van when Williams tried to run over three Murray County deputies, according to Sheriff Gary Langford.
Sheriff Langford said the Murray County Sheriff's Office got a tip on Thursday night that Williams was on Jim Petty Road.
"He tried to run over approximately three of my deputies and then he came out into the road, and when he came out onto the road almost striking one of the patrol cars," said Sheriff Langford.
A deputy fired shots to try to slow Williams down.
"He struck the, I believe it was the left front wheel the tire went down the vehicle went off into the ditch," said Sheriff Langford.
That's when Williams ran into the woods, and it took a 30-minute search for deputies to find him.
It was Chief Deputy Jimmy Davenport and another sergeant who went into the thick brush to find him.
"A day prior he put who knows how many people at risk, he is a fleeing felon we need to end this, we need to end it now," said Davenport.
When they found Williams in the bushes, he was only 10 to 15 feet away from his car, and the fight to elude law enforcement was over.
"He was unable to move, just exhausted in pain from a previous ankle injury," said Davenport.
He said they had to carry Williams back to the road, so an ambulance could take him to the hospital. He said the found prescription pills on him, and the search warrant on his vehicle might produce more charges.
Williams is currently being held in the Murray County Jail and all deputies involved in the incident are OK.
The deputy who fired shots is on paid administrative leave, and the GBI is reviewing his actions. This is protocol for the Murray County Sheriff's Office whenever a weapon is fired.
Williams is facing four counts of aggravated assault on a peace officer, along with active warrants in Whitfield County for fleeing or attempting to elude a felony, and reckless driving.
Fulmer is charged as an accessory to the aggravated assault charges.
