3 teens arrested after wild chase through Atlanta, DeKalb

A wild Friday night chase that involved Tasers, K9s, a pedestrian hit and a crash outside a DeKalb County gas station ended with three teenagers in handcuffs, Atlanta police said.

A fourth suspect got away.

Dabious Hill, DeQuan Grier and Justin Bostic, all 18 years old, were arrested following the events that started early Friday with a 2014 Toyota Corolla taken at gunpoint in Riverdale. Hours later, DeKalb police informed Atlanta police that the car was spotted near Knox and Daniel streets, and officers set up a surveillance team.

Around 9:30 p.m., four men returned to the Corolla and drove off. Authorities attempted a traffic stop, but to no avail.

About two blocks into the chase, two of the suspects — Grier and Bostic — jumped out. They were “apprehended following a short foot chase and being tased by APD officers,” spokeswoman Kim Jones said in an email.

The Corolla drove on, leading officers from Atlanta, DeKalb County, the city of Decatur and the Georgia State Patrol on a half-hour chase, hitting a male pedestrian near I-20 and Candler Road along the way. The Corolla ultimately crashed at a Citgo station on DeKalb’s Columbia Drive.

The driver, Hill, was “located and bitten” by a K9, Jones said. The remaining passenger escaped.

Hill, Grier and Bostic were each charged with theft by receiving and obstruction, with “a slew of traffic-related offenses” tacked on for Hill, Jones said. They were being held in the DeKalb County jail.

The pedestrian hit during the chase was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
