Gwinnett County, GA – Police have arrested a man after his theft of a Krispy Kreme delivery truck led to a high-speed and delicious car chase.
Cops from Gwinnett County in Georgia, whose motivation we wouldn’t wish to question, pursued 45-year-old James Freddy Major as he fled in the stolen truck across the county. The Lawrenceville man nabbed the Krispy Kreme truck from a Dacula gas station last week as a delivery man for the doughnut franchise was making his delivery.
A Gwinnett police report revealed the Krispy Kreme truck was dropping off a delivery when Major “approached [the driver] before he entered the store to start his delivery.” It added that Major seemed to be under the influence.
A sheriff’s office K9 unit quickly identified that the truck was headed toward Interstate 85 on Highway 316. But, when police began to pursue Major, the doughnut bandit refused to pull over. The police report explains:
“The vehicle then sped up on the interstate and failed to yield to our visual and audible signals to pull over. The suspect vehicle then exited the interstate on the Beaver Ruin Road exit and made a left turn, while running the red light on the top of the exit.”
After running a few more red lights and causing at least one vehicle to swerve off the road, Major crashed into a mailbox before attempting to flee on foot. How did that go? Per the report:
“The suspect was apprehended by K9 dog bite and officers on scene placed the suspect under arrest.”
Major (pictured below) has been charged with three felonies, three misdemeanors, and seven more traffic violations. The arrest was Major’s 11th in Gwinnett since 1999.
