Thursday, November 07 about 11:00 a.m. Sheriff Cox was traveling west on U.S. 36 signaling to turn south onto Highway D (Mooresville Junction) when he noticed a very fast moving blue colored Toyota approaching from the rear while it was weaving between vehicles. That vehicle was checked at 109 and the radar was locked in at 107 as the vehicle slowed a bit. The Toyota was unsafely changing lanes while passing motorists.

The vehicle was stopped near U.S. 36 and Highway D and the  driver was identified as Altaf A. Talaty, 25, Chicago, Illinois. Mr. Talaty was attempting to take a passenger to St. Joseph and return to Chicago. The stop resulted in the arrest of Mr. Talaty for the alleged excessive speed of 107 in a 65 and Careless and Imprudent Driving by Endangering the Safety of Others on the Roadway due to his reckless driving in addition to the speed.

Mr. Talaty was processed at the LCSO and posted bond when he was released on citations pending Court appearance December 11, 2019 at 9:00 a.m.


 

Good defensive driving requires you to pay close attention to your entire surroundings. Think about it, if you are in a vehicle traveling 65 miles per hour you are moving at a rate of 95.33 feet per second. If you are in a vehicle traveling at 107 miles per hour you are moving at a rate of 156.933 feet per second. At those speeds the chances of being seriously injured or killed in an accident are greatly increased.

Please take a few minutes and talk with your children who are or are approaching driving age about the needs to be a defensive driver.

Life is short, plan ahead, be aware of your surroundings and get home safe.

Bad Choices Leads to Multiple Citations and Trip to Jail

 

(Chandler Griffith booking photo)

 

November 02 about 12:17 p.m. Deputy Leadbetter reported witnessing a motorcycle being driven by a male in a careless manner without a helmet in the area of Polk and Miller Streets in Chillicothe. The motorcyclist nearly struck our patrol vehicle head-on. The suspect refused to stop and was driving extremely dangerous. The deputy ceased any further attempt to stop the motorcycle due to the overall circumstances and risks.

Continued investigation into this matter led to the arrest of Chandler Paul Griffith, 20, Kansas City for alleged Resisting Arrest by Flight, Failure to Yield to an Emergency Vehicle and several other traffic offense allegations.

Mr. Griffith was transferred to the Daviess Dekalb County Regional Jail and has since been charged in Livingston County Associate Court with alleged class E felony Resisting Arrest/Detention/Stop by Fleeing-Creating a Substantial Risk of Death or Serious Injury to Any Person. Mr. Griffith remains incarcerated at DDRJ in lieu of bond.

Please never run from law enforcement.  Simply pull to the right and stop, place your hands on the steering wheel and follow directions given.  Fleeing only endangers yourself, those with you, the innocent people on the roads and the law enforcement officer(s).  A bad choice is not worth dying for or hurting anyone!

Keep in mind on a 2 lane highway you are only maybe 1 to 2 feet apart from every vehicle you meet and having a violent head-on collision. On 4 lane divided highways you are maybe 1 to 2 feet apart from sideswipe collision with every passing vehicle. We are happy to help see people make it home safe and educate some to be a better driver.
