Around 9 a.m. Tuesday, June 11, the Pike County Sheriff’s Office received a call about shots fired in the area of Gresham Road and New Hope Road. When the first deputy to respond to the call attempted to make a traffic stop on a 1997 green Toyota Tacoma, the driver – Craig Mincey – attempted to elude officers, heading toward Highway 19. As the suspect’s vehicle approached the intersection of Gresham Road and Highway 19, he attempted to make a right turn onto the highway and slammed into a Pike County Sheriff’s Office vehicle. Mincey at that time engaged in a physical altercation with deputies and was placed under arrest. He was transported to Spalding Regional Medical. Charges are pending.
