An alleged “super speeder” was arrested last Friday after leading police on a high-speed chase in Cobb County, authorities said.
Brandon Demetrius Montgomery, 34, of Columbus, faces four charges after the police chase on I-75 North about 11:15 a.m., according to Cobb police arrest warrants. He’s accused of driving a stolen 2018 Chevrolet Impala that also had four ecstasy tablets inside.
The vehicle was reported stolen a day earlier from a Hertz location in Atlanta, the warrant said. During the chase, Montgomery allegedly drove 110 mph while passing multiple vehicles in emergency and travel lanes.
This “caused other drivers to take evasive actions to avoid an accident caused by the accused’s disregard for their safety,” the warrants said.
Because he’s accused of driving faster than 85 mph on an interstate, his speeding charge is classified as a “super speeder” under Georgia law.
Montgomery faces charges of theft by receiving, super speeding, attempting to elude police and possession of ecstasy, Cobb jail records show.
As of Friday evening, he remained in jail on a $16,720 bond.
