For the latest in your demonetized enjoyment: On Friday, August 28th, 2020 while patrolling northbound on I-555, in Poinsett County, Arkansas, Trooper Blaine Middlecoff was ovetaken by a black passenger car displaying Florida tags. Middlecoff ran the tags displayed via ACIC, and the return indicated that the tags had expired in June 2020. Middlecoff initiatd a traffic stop on the suspect vehicle at the 20 mile marker northbound.
“I then approached the suspect vehicle on the passenger side and immediately smelled the odor of marijuana emitting from the vehicle. I observed a male occupant (operator) and a female occupant (passenger), and I advised I was Trooper Middlecoff with the Arkansas State Police and advised the operator of the vehicle he was being stopped for expired license registration. I then asked for his license, registration, and proof of insurance. The suspect was only able to provide his license and a rental agreement at the time. It was at this time I asked the suspect to exit the vehicle and meet me at the rear of his vehicle.
Once at the rear of the vehicle I asked the suspect if there were any illegal items within the vehicle or on his person, in which he stated there [were not]. The suspect stated he had smoked marijuana earlier in the day but did not have any with him.
I then did a quick search for weapons on the suspects person and walked back to the vehicle and asked the passenger if there were any drugs within the vehicle. The passenger stated there was nothing illegal in the vehicle and stated she was on her period. I then asked the passenger to step out of the vehicle. The passenger again stated she was on her period before exiting the vehicle. Once out of the vehicle I observed a large bulge within the lower portion of the passenger’s front waistband. I asked her what the bulge was, and she stated it was a pad for her period. I then advised her I knew it was not a pad and to pull it out from her waistband. The passenger then pulled a small baggie of suspected marijuana out from her waistband and handed it to me. I then placed the bag on the front of the suspect vehicle and escorted the passenger to where the suspect and Cpl. McLaughlin was standing.
It was at this time I returned to the suspect vehicle to search for any other illegal items within. When I opened the front driver door, I immediately observed a 40 round rifle magazine in the door pocket. Then I observed the barrel of a rifle just under the driver seat. It was at this time I made the decision to place both subjects into custody until my investigation was complete. As I approached the suspect, he fled towards his vehicle, escaping my attempt[s] to detain him. * * *
Cpl. McLaughlin and I entered our patrol unit, leaving the passenger, and began pursuing the suspect. As we were pursuing the suspect, I reached speeds of 120 mph before catching up to him approximately 3 miles from the stop location. The suspect entered the 24 exit onto State Highway 463. He then immediately returned to I-555 southbound in attempt to flee into Tennessee. As I caught up to the suspect – reaching speeds of 130mph – I observed him weaving in and out of traffic, almost striking multiple vehicles. I was then able to get close enough to perform a PIT to end the pursuit. On my first attempt the suspect engaged his brakes, disrupting my positioning. I then attempted to reposition for a second attempt, but the suspect continued to cut me off and brake to keep me from getting in position. I was able to get in position a third time but again the suspect braked and attempted to ram the side of my patrol unit. After regaining control, I was once again behind the suspect vehicle as he continued to flee. After many attempts to regain a good position for a PIT, I was able to PIT the suspect vehicle as he tried once again to brake. This sent us both into the median of I-555. The suspect was able to regain control of his vehicle and proceed onto I-555 southbound.
It was at this time I performed a second PIT which stopped the suspect in the median. I was then able to take the suspect into custody without further incident.
Once the suspect was in custody and in the back of my patrol unit, I searched the suspect vehicle for any more illegal items. That search ultimately revealed – among other things – 168 grams of marijuana, $7,128 cash, and multiple loaded firearms.
The suspect vehicle was towed from the scene by Rusty’s Towing. The passenger, whose first name is allegedly “Maddie,” was never located. The suspect, Randy Blackburn, was arrested and transported to Poinsett County Detention center on charges of felony fleeing, reckless driving, speeding, resisting arrest, possession of firearms by prohibited person, simultaneous possession of drugs and firearms, possession of schedule 6 with purpose to deliver, and possession instruments of a crime.

Holy shit this Trooper's partner is the worst, doesn't do anything while the suspect is fidgeting around, and doesn't even jump out and help with the arrest when they stop the car, he just strolls in after oh my god haha
Great job!! So stupid to run. 🖤💙🖤💙💪
Damn, it sounded personal for that officer. Rage and adrenaline.
There is no systemic institutional racism just systemic Black stupidity.
Expired tags on a rental car? Wow, these troopers are fighting some serious crime
never run from police here in Arkansas! they will chase you down. whatever happens after that is on you.
I thought common sense come free..
I would try telling the truth before I lie
All of this over some weed? Seems excessive on both sides.
Totally off topic but sick new logo design RWP!
That dude looks like pure trouble
These dumb fools think they can outrun ASP?
They don't watch enough real world police.
They'll pit you doing 134mph!
Fat boy didn’t want any of that lol
These troopers had terrible situational awareness to let this guy have that long to frog out of there. They should both be fired.
Is ANYONE gonna mention how the Oaf Partner cop just kinda Mosey on up after his partner puts himself in the line of fire, and gets him cuff. Then Fat boy comes up to the scene.
После ареста можно не смотреть, ничего интересного.
Bet the cop losing his hat us why he was so pissed off while arresting him.
I'll never understand why people run. Like bro you aren't gonna get away. You also have like 95% chance you will hurt or kill someone
an noone missed latisha …
If that was my girlfriend then that is how I'd break up with her too.
To be honest, they had his licence, they had his gf, they had the charges, they shouldn't have chased. Just write up the charges and issue a warrant. They could even stake out the car rental place and get him when he returned it. If I'm not mistaken most rentals have trackers so they can access it and know exactly where he is……
He broke up with her right there 😂
Late for his volunteer work , and this is how they treat him. Such BS. Cops need to be better trained on dealing with citizens.
That other Trooper needs to retire or stay in the station. Just casually walks to the car and then slowly gets out after the pit.
who's gonna hold your Hat
Imagine renting a car with expired plates. Steve Lehto did a video on this about a woman who rented a car same deal: had expired plates. SHE got a ticket, told budget when she dropped the car off, they said they'd look after it. They didn't. She got a court date missed it, licence was suspended and a warrant issued for her arrest.
Then there was the one where Budget (Or Hertz?) reported a rental car stolen, police saw it, pulled over the woman, arrested her even though HER paperwork said she'd rented it for a week and this was only the 3rd day. These two instances are why I say cops aren't here to serve and protect, in BOTH cases the driver was completely innocent, they should have gone after the rental company NOT the driver.
You could tell he was going to run just by looking at him.
And people wonder why police act the way they do sometimes……..because cops, as well as other law abiding citizens are getting fed up with these thugs doing whatever they want, putting other people in harm's way. Cops see these scumbag thugs doing this crap, then being released, just to do it again. The law abiding citizens are tired of this crap.
This is what happens when sneaky and stupid have sex.
Suspect didn't know that Arkansas State police will chase you all the way to hell.
tha'ts her king lol,
He is not going to be able to have a girlfriend in about 18 miles.
The way he was moving around in the car it’s like he’s high on something. Hope he does 20 years minimum. No use to society. These type never learn.
Top 10 dumbest people ever
Is that fat officer with the glasses on vacation or something? He did absolutely NOTHING during both the initial stop, pursuit and the second detainment.
You are NOT in the Army anymore BOY!!!!
HERE IN FLORIDA WHEN WE DO A STOP THE ABSOLUTE FIRST THING WE DO IS TAKE CONTROL OF THE KEYS. KINDA PREVENTS THE SITUATION THAT WE HAVE HERE. APPARENTLY THE ARKANSAS STATE POLICE HAVE NOT FIGURED THIS SIMPLE TECHNIQUE OUT YET. HOPEFULLY THEY CATCH UP PRETTY SOON. I MEAN WITH THE TECHNIQUE NOT THIS POTHEAD THATS RUNNING BECAUSE NO ONE TOOK CONTROL OF THE KEYS. HOPEFULLY SOMEONE IN POWER AT ARKANSAS STATE POLICE READ THIS.
Running in the opposite direction when dude was at reach was really dumb.
All this over some weed?? Wtf is everyone in this video nuts. Fuck Arkansas
The other officer shouldn't of let him walk around so damn much, you could see that coming, what if he would of pulled out a pistol and started blasting all of them
