Shots hit a deputy’s vehicle after gunfire erupted during a wild 10-mile long police pursuit early Sunday morning through Pensacola. The deputy’s vehicle was struck by gunfire at least twice during the pursuit that ended on Nine Mile Road. There were no injuries reported.
Christopher Michael Chancey, age 29 of Ten Mile Road, was charged with four counts of aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, two counts of firing a weapon from a vehicle, fleeing and eluding, resisting arrest and driving with a suspended license. Brittany Wagner was charged with four counts of accessory before the fact aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer.
A deputy attempted to stop a 2003 Dodge Dakota driven by Chancey at the intersection of Jackson Street and Old Corry Field Road after an improper lane change. The vehicle accelerated away, passing other vehicles in no passing zones. The deputy turned off his emergency lights and discontinued the attempted traffic stop.
