“Pursuits are some of the most deadly jobs we do in police work. We allow our supervisors to determine if the pursuit should continue, taking into consideration the crime that has been committed, in this case a traffic violation, and the danger to the public. Public safety is most important,” said Sheriff William Earl Hilton.
Tylor is charged with the following: Speeding, Aggravated Flight From Officer, Running Stop Sign, Careless Operation Vehicle, Drivers License, Reckless Operation Vehicle, Theft of Motor Vehicle, Criminal Mischief and Drug Paraphernalia.
