FL Man Leads Louisa Police on Chase

Rodney Pough of Pensacola, FL, has been arrested and charged with attempted capital murder. A state policeman attempted to stop Pough in Henrico for speeding, but the suspect fled west on 64 at over 100 mph. He drove over a tire-deflation strip and continued to drive on his rims, so two police cars got ahead of him and created a “rolling roadblock” by driving slowly in both lanes. As Pough approached, he shot twice through his front windshield at the cars, injuring one of the officers. The suspect crashed his vehicle in Louisa and ran into the woods, leading to a manhunt involving state police, dogs and a couple of helicopters. He was tracked down by a pair of bloodhounds at 3:40am, and his now in custody. Today’s Progress has the story.
