Attempt to Flee Checkpoint leaves Suspect Stuck in Mud

VALDOSTA — Police officer were forced to pursue a suspect fleeing a license checkpoint, and caught him when he became stuck in mud

Wednesday, Valdosta Police Department officers were conducting a driver’s license checkpoint at the intersection of Marion Street and Alden Avenue in Valdosta.

During the operation, officers reported Eddie Shine, 25 of Valdosta, as giving a false name at the checkpoint. Based on that, officers instructed Shine to turn off his vehicle (a Jeep Cherokee Laredo).

Shine had other ideas, revving up his engine and then accelerating away from the checkpoint in his vehicle.  As he fled, an officer had to move quickly out of the way of Shine’s vehicle as Shine turned the corner at a high rate of speed and sped away from the checkpoint. The officer was not injured.

Valdosta Police pursued Shine to Jaycee Shack Road where he turned south.  His vehicle left the roadway just past the intersection where it became stuck in mud alongside of the railroad track.

Shine was not injured and officers promptly took him into custody.

Shine was transported to the Lowndes County Jail where arrest warrants were signed for Fleeing and Eluding and Aggravated Assault on a Law Enforcement Officer. He was also issued citations for No Valid License and Reckless Driving.

    Reminds me of when I was a Remerton cop and I got stuck in mud after I clocked a speeder.

    I’m sure it was funny as can be to everybody at the Mill House who saw it.

    Lucky day for the speeder.
