Hit-and-run suspect led deputies on chase across Alabama-Florida line with kids in car, officials say


A hit-and-run last week in Alabama led to a police chase and a Florida woman’s arrest, according to officials.

Armani Brown, 19, of Tallahassee was involved in a hit-and-run incident in the city of Enterprise on July 9, according to the Holmes County Sheriff’s Office.

Brown, who had two children in the backseat of the car at the time of the chase, took off through Geneva County, Alabama and headed towards Florida, less than 30 miles away.

According to WTVY, officers with the Hartford Police Department informed officials with the Holmes County Sheriff’s Office that the chase would enter their jurisdiction.

Officials with the Holmes County Sheriff’s Office joined the chase in the area of Highway 79 and Hoover Mill Road.

According to the outlet, Brown ran off the road after officials set up spike strips at the intersection of Highway 173 and 79.

Brown, however, was able to continue onto another street, but was eventually forced off the road into a ditch.

After the final crash, Brown was taken into custody and charged with aggravated fleeing and attempting to elude, reckless driving, driving without a valid driver’s license and two counts of child endangerment.
