Monroe County deputies Tasered a Macon man after he fled Monroe County deputies, wrecked and then ran on foot around 6:04 p.m. on March 29.
According to the sheriff’s report, Cpl. Thomas Haskins saw a blue 2003 Cadillac Deville with dark tint driven by Isaac Reeves, 30, of Macon and tried to stop the vehicle as it was traveling down Hwy. 87 near Camilla Plant Drive. Reeves slowed after Haskins activated his emergency lights but then turned onto Bowdoin Drive and accelerated to dangerous speeds.
Reeves turned right onto McCrackin Street at an excessive speed and barely negotiated several turns without wrecking. As they approached Juliette, the Cadillac drove over a hillcrest at around 100 mph in a 25-mph zone. As the vehicle crested the hill, Reeves drove off the right side of the road, lost control and hit the embankment on the left side of the road.
Reeves then exited the vehicle and ran on foot. Haskins chased after him and loudly commanded him to stop running. They continued running through a creek bed, and through a very heavily wooded area. Haskins caught up to Reeves and told him to stop or he would be tased. Reeves continued running and the corporal deployed his taser from around 10 feet and struck Reeves in the back who then fell to the ground.
Haskins then drew his weapon, handcuffed Reeves, and walked him out of the woods. Deputies learned he had a suspended license, had a full extradition warrant out of Jacksonville, Fla. and was also wanted out of Gwinnett County for probation violation.
Several packages of marijuana were found in the Cadillac that Reeves admitted belonged to him. Reeves also had several cuts on his face from running though the briars and had to be treated at the Monroe County Hospital.
Reeves was taken to the Monroe County Jail and charged with fleeing, reckless driving, driving while license suspended, failure to maintain lane, failure to stop at a stop sign (2 counts), obstruction, window tint violation, and possession of marijuana.
