132 MPH Pursuit of 19 Year Old Driving Dodge Charger R/T

From the report of Trooper Brandon Bird, lightly edited for clarity: On Friday, April 9, 2021, at approximately 3:50 pm, as I was traveling southbound on State Highway 7, I observed a white Dodge Charger traveling northbound at a high rate of speed near Tucker Road north of Ola. I checked the speed of the vehicle with my radar and confirmed it to be traveling at 85 miles per hour in a posted 55 mile per hour zone. I turned around to initiate a traffic stop, but the driver of the vehicle increased speed in an attempt to elude.

I initiated lights and siren, and advised dispatch that I was in pursuit of the white Dodge Charger. As we traveled northbound on State Highway 7 at speeds well over 100 miles per hour, I observed the suspect driving recklessly, passing other vehicles on the shoulder and in no-passing zones, and nearly striking other motorists.

At approximately 3:54 pm, I advised dispatch to notify Dardanelle Police Department to see if they could assist in the apprehension of the suspect. At approximately 3:57 pm, as we entered Dardanelle, I was able to relay the vehicle’s license plate number to dispatch. At this time I observed the suspect throw a beer can out of the passenger side window.

As we approached the intersection of State Highway 7 and Old Highway 7, Dardanelle Police Department had the intersection shut down for me to safely continue pursuing the suspect. As we continued traveling northbound into Dardanelle, Trooper Steven Payton joined in the pursuit. We continued to pursue north on State Highway 7, passing Highway 27 due to Dardanelle Police Department blocking the intersection.

We then turned right onto Union Street (State Highway 7), and I couldn’t see any other traffic control at intersections. At this time, Trooper Payton and I decided to slow down and safely get through traffic. [Trooper Bird apparently forgot to mention that he was ordered to terminate the pursuit.] Once we were on the Arkansas River Bridge, leaving Dardanelle and entering into Pope County, I increased my speeds in an attempt to keep eyes on the suspect.

Immediately after entering into Pope County, I observed the suspect turn right onto State Highway 247 northbound. State Highway 247 is a five-lane highway and typically doesn’t have much traffic. Upon turning onto State Highway 247, and after communicating with my supervisor, I made the decision to catch back up to the suspect in an attempt to end the pursuit.

As we were traveling northbound on State Highway 247, the suspect attempted to make a right turn onto West Tucker Road and lost control of his vehicle, overshooting West Tucker Road and striking the ditch. The suspect regained control and made a series of maneuvers to exit the ditch and turn onto West Tucker Road. We traveled a short distance down West Tucker Road before the road came to a T-intersection with Pond View Drive.

The suspect made a right turn onto Pond View Drive and noticed a “Dead End Road” sign, The suspect rounded the corner where two children were playing on scooters on the edge of the roadway. The suspect showed no regard to the children as I blew my horn and motioned frantically for the kids to move away from the roadway. At approximately 4:02pm, once we reached the end of Pond View Drive, the suspect pulled into a driveway on Pond View Drive and exited the vehicle with his hands in the air.

I ordered the suspect to the ground where he was handcuffed and placed into the back seat of my unit. The suspect and sole occupant of the vehicle was identified as Corbin Fischer. Upon searching the vehicle, located an opened box of beer. I gave the suspect a portable breath test (PBT), which registered .02%.

Fischer was transported to the Yell County Detention Center where he refused to provide a urine sample. He was booked into the facility on suspicion of:

Reckless Driving-2nd
Careless/Prohibited Driving
Possession of Alcohol by Minor
Underage DUI-2nd
Refusal to Submit to a Chemical Test
Endangering Welfare of Minor
Open Container
Drinking in Public or Drinking on Highway
Driving DWI Suspended License

Fischer was ultimately charged with the following misdemeanors and violations:

Reckless driving-1st
Endangering welfare of a minor
Open container
Driving DWI suspended license
Underage DUI
Refusal to submit to a chemical test
Careless/prohibited driving
Purchase or possession of alcohol by a minor
Public intoxication

Fischer entered a negotiated plea of guilty to underage DUI and misdemeanor fleeing. The other charges were nolle prossed. He was sentenced to three months in county jail for for the DUI and 30 days for fleeing, with both sentences suspended subject to conditions of probation. Fischer’s driver’s license was suspended for one year, and he had to pay fines and fees totaling ~$1,360 plus $50 month for probation.

  1. So the initial violation was 85 in a 55. We all agree the dirtbag shouldn’t have run but let’s also agree that the pursuit was not reasonable for the infraction.

    The Trooper ran numerous people off the road including 2 tractor trailers and almost hit one head on. He almost ran over children and sideswiped many vehicles. Pursuits aren’t always a reasonable answer and this one should have terminated immediately. The danger to citizens, property and lives was too great for a simple speeding ticket.

  2. @14:18 😂🤣:
    [Suspect] – “Know what’s crazy?”
    [Cop] – “You’re crazy, that’s what”
    [Suspect] – “I just picked up my car from the shop”
    [Cop] – “You should’ve left it there”

  3. "The state of Arkansas shall never be a defendant in any case…"
    Qualified Immunity. Never shouldve pursued that long for a speeding ticket (cops own admission, wouldve just been a speeding ticket), too much risk. Thankfully, with all these videos of the ASP being uploaded, there will be a mountain of evidence depicting their behavior and training when that day comes.

  4. Crooks – See what happens when even after you fail to stop, but then cooperate, follow instructions, and DON'T RUN, DON'T FIGHT, DON'T SHOOT at the police. Turns out you just end up in hooks and safely in the back of a police car.

  5. First things first that windshield looks as though it hasn't been cleared since the day the department purchased it! I notice in the description the officer says in his report that he blew his horn and waved for the kids to move @12:25 I don't think he did either but even if he did he was as guilty as the idiot driving the charger for putting those kids in danger. At those speeds with some of the traffic they encountered the pursuit should have been called off especially after the officer was able to get a license plate number.

  6. Damn. $1,300 fine a suspended license is all he got punished?! I was busted racing 15 years ago and I lost my license for two years and had $2,000 fine and I didn't run and was sober.

  7. That boy gave up his rights when he did that as far as I'm concerned he'd make a nice toy in jail. And it should be an automatic 30-day impound of the vehicle

  8. I'll never understand why we allow cops to engage in these high-speed chases for just a speeding offense. The chances of injury or death to innocent bystanders were increased exponentially when the fleeing driver went from the initial 85 mph to 135 mph.

    I worked at a Kroger store where a woman came in and stole some baby formula. I got a good description of her vehicle which I gave to the police when I called to report it. An officer in the area spotted the vehicle and attempted to pull her over. A chase ensued and the woman t-boned another vehicle when she ran a red light. The driver of the other vehicle was an elderly lady that died on the scene. It's lazy and intellectually dishonest to put all the blame on the shoplifter. No petty crime is worth putting the public at risk with a high-speed chase. I wish I had never called that crime in. My part in her death has haunted me for over 20 years.

  9. Doesn't seem like the punishment was enough. i think a fine of $5000 or something substantial would have worked better. 5 year license suspension maybe. The kid will drive without a license, that's an obvious choice for someone who is this irresponsible. How did he get a car like this ? Who gave him the keys? is my question. Not one day in jail. Yeah, justice was served. Disgusting. If it were me he would be cleaning up trash along the roadside every afternoon for 5 years, unpaid. I like the idea of an ankle bracelet too. Smoothie faced puke gets away with one.

  10. Dude got into more trouble,should have stopped even if he had a suspended license and a few sips of a beer and a joint..Thats still less charges than what he is facing!

  11. That's one thing I hate about living out in rural areas. All the damn bugs on your windshield. 'Get outta my wallet' The entitlement of this idiot.

  12. Brought to you by Dodge. every car in the chase rolled down the same assembly line and even had the same paint color. Good job catching a guy going 85 in a 55 by running through traffic at 130. This is why I chose EMS over LE. I couldn't be that much of a hypocrite.
