Reeves led Thompson and other deputies on a 10-minute chase along Keith Bridge Road, through a Dunkin’ Donuts parking lot and then down Ga. 369 toward Gainesville with the rear sliding doors of the minivan open.
The chase ended when the minivan left the highway and crashed into a ditch at Bethel Road, dashcam footage shows.
Reeves is charged with theft by receiving a stolen vehicle, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, possession of marijuana, fleeing and attempting to elude, driving without a valid license and several traffic violations. He was also wanted in Fulton and Clayton counties, police said.
Reeves remains held without bond at the Forsyth County jail.
One of his passengers was arrested outside the auto parts store once deputies discovered he had an outstanding arrest warrant out of Douglas County, police said.
The other two passengers were given a ride back to their work site.
Channel 2 Action News has obtained video of wild police chase that started with a police officer pulling over a minivan with an expired tag.
