Chicot County, Arkansas — On Saturday, September 24, 2022, at approximately 2:00 p.m., Arkansas State Police Trooper Walker Morphis was patrolling northbound on United States Highway 65. While on routine patrol, he observed a black Chevy Tahoe traveling southbound on United States Highway 65 with tags that expired in March of 2022. Trp. Morphis activated emergency equipment to conduct a traffic stop on the vehicle for the observed violation. Once emergency equipment was activated, the vehicle continued to travel southbound on United States Highway 65. Approximately one mile after activating the emergency equipment, the driver of the vehicle turned his right turn signal on, but continued to travel southbound at a speed of 61 mph.

After approximately 1.5 miles, Trp. Morphis advised ASP-Troop F Dispatch that they were still continuing southbound. Trooper Tyler Grant was approximately two miles south of Trp. Morphis location on United States Highway 65 and responded to assist him. Pursuant to Arkansas State Police Policy (LE SEC 18), Trp. Grant took primary position of the pursuit in his marked ASP unit. They continued southbound on United States Highway 65 for approximately one more mile. Once in a safe location, Trp. Grant moved into position to perform a Precision Immobilization Technique (PIT). A PIT maneuver was successfully conducted, resulting in the vehicle exiting the roadway and traveling into the west roadside ditch. Once in the roadside ditch, the vehicle overturned two times, and came to final rest on its roof.

The driver, identified as John Jones and the passenger, identified as Justin Hurd, were both removed from the vehicle and taken into custody without further incident. Pafford EMS responded to the scene and examined both suspects. Both suspects refused medical treatment and were transported to the Lake Village Jail. Jones was charged with Felony Fleeing, Reckless Driving, No Liability Insurance, No Seatbelt, Driving on Suspended Driver’s License, and Expired Registration. Jones also had a nationwide extradition warrant out of the Arkansas Board of Parole, and an additional warrant out of the Chicot County Sheriff’s Office for commercial burglary. Jones is being held at the Lake Village Jail for a first appearance. Hurd was not charged by the Arkansas State Police. Hurd stated throughout the encounter that he was attempting to get out of the vehicle but that Jones would not stop to let him out.

  1. I wish I could hire that police officer, or man just like him to be "honorable big father," to be at the jail to give the dad caught you out doing wrong lecture to these men after they are put in their cell. Hire a "honorable big mother' at the jail to give the guys & the girls the Mama give you lecture you got caught doing work. If parents won't raise them right, then maybe we could hire some ex military man & woman to work those roles?

  2. Honestly I think this particular pit could have been avoided. They weren't traveling fast or endangering other drivers, they weren't bank robbers or murderers. Just follow them get more officer's there box them in. THIS COP MADE A POOR DECISION…. Arkansas needs to invest in some grappler too….

  3. IN MY VIEW
    I am glad Justin Hurd was not charged and let go. He had a good attitude with the troopers and was believable when he said he kept telling John Jones all kinds of common sense to get him to NOT mess up, beginning with "Pull over!"

  4. Hunter Thompson “No cop was ever born who isn't a sucker for a finely-executed hi-speed Controlled Drift all the way around one of those clover-leaf freeway interchanges. Few people understand the psychology of dealing with a highway traffic cop. Your normal speeder will panic and immediately pull over to the side when he sees the big red light behind him… and then we will start apologizing begging for mercy. This is wrong. It arouses contempt in the cop-heart. The thing to dowhen you're running along about a hundred or so and you suddenly find a red-flashing CHP-tracker on your trail what you want to do then is accelerate.”

  5. I feel like this was overkill? It wasn't really an aggravated pursuit and they could have killed these people or even worse. We have the resources to tail them until they have to stop and pit them only if their driving changes.
