Video: Authorities Are Lead on a Crazy Car Chase
COLUMBUS, Miss. (WCBI)- Threats, a man with a shotgun…and a police chase ended peacefully Wednesday (12-12) morning on Highway 45 in Columbus. Phillip Parker was finally stopped just in front of the army recruiters office by Highway Patrol Troopers, Columbus Law Enforcement, and Lowndes County Sheriff’s Deputies. Parker was driving a white company truck at the time of the chase and did have a shotgun in the truck. Investigators say Parker, who was scheduled for a mental health evaluation Wednesday (12-12) morning, changed his mind and became agitated. His son notified authorities, who managed to stop Parker without incident. No charges have been filed. Family members say Parker has since agreed to seek the help he was scheduled to receive Wednesday morning.
