Floyd County police have released information from a chase near Martha Berry Blvd on Tuesday night. Reports said that an officer was dispatched to Dwight Street in order to arrest Terry LeAllen Scott, 42 of Rome, who had an active warrant from Chattooga County. Officer Carlos Ribot-Aviles said that he dispatched for ‘more units because of Scott’s priors of fleeing’. It was at that time he noticed a Dodge Durango turn into Warren Street from James Street and spotted Scott, who attempted to hide his face, and a passenger later identified as 28 year-old Cynthia Diane Rape of Trion.
Ribot-Aviles told 911 that Scott was leaving and that the vehicle was speeding away, so as a result he attempted to pull the vehicle over.
Aviles said that it was then a chase ensued on Old Dalton Road with speeds reaching up to 93 miles per hour. The vehicle eventually came to a stop on Beard Road. Officers reported that Scott jumped out of the SUV and ran away on foot.
Ribot-Aviles reported ‘I observed Mr. Scott was grabbing something around his waistline while running away.’ It was then the officer said he noticed Rape hiding under the vehicle.
Rape allegedly told officers that Scott was running toward US 27 toward Rhinehart Equipment.
At this point a K9, along with numerous other officers, were called to help in the search for Scott.
Reports went on to say that Rape told officers that they also hid from them during a chase from January of last year.
Scott has yet to be apprehended.
Rape was arrested and charged with willful obstruction of law enforcement.
Terry is also now wanted for willful obstruction of law enforcement, eluding a police officer, speeding and reckless driving.
