Suspect Leads Police on High Speed Chase


The Wilson County's sheriff's office says a tip helped them arrest a carjacking suspect, who they believe was on his way to Wilson to rob a bank at gunpoint. Video shoot from inside a Wilson County Sheriff's deputy's car recorded the chase that reached speeds of 120 miles an hour. Major John Farmer says the suspect, 34-year-old Eric O'Dell Gadson of Wilson, led deputies on this chase for up to 12 miles on several rural roads in the county. They were able to end the chase after ramming his car off the road. Gadson remains behind bars at the Wilson County jail on a variety of charges and is expected to appear in front of a judge before week's end.
