After receiving a possible DUI complaint, Deputy Wally Ritter observed a silver 1996 Ford Mustang crossing the yellow line multiple times and driving erratically in the Kyrock area. Ritter attempted to initate a traffic stop at the Kyrock Road/Nolin Dam Road intersection on the vehicle, later found to be operated by Darrell J. "DJ" Glenn III.
The vehicle initially stopped, but speed off as Ritter exited his police cruiser. Police say that Glenn then turned onto Kyrock Road and a pursuit began, reaching speeds close to 100mph. The pursuit came to an end after the Mustang crashed into a tree in sharp curve just east of the Nolin River.
Glenn was arrested and lodged in the Hart County Jail on charges including Aggravated DUI, Fleeing or Evading Police 1st Degree, Wanton Endangerment of a Police Officer 1st Degree, and Wanton Endangerment 1st Degree.
Ritter was assisted by Deputy Stoney Phillips, Special Deputy Roger St. Onge, BCPD Officer Nathan Dennis and Edmonson EMS.
