2 men charged in connection to Albion shooting and high-speed chase
BATTLE CREEK, Mich. —
Marshall Police caught a high-speed chase through Calhoun County on their dash camera and two men were arraigned in connection with a shooting in Albion and the chase.
Police said the chase started Friday night after a shooting in Albion. During the case the car hit speeds more than 100 miles an hour and when it was all over two men were arrested.
Rodney Davis, 34, and William Google, 31, were formally charged on Monday with assault with intent to do great bodily harm, less than murder. Davis was also charged with fleeing from police.
This dash cam video from a Marshall police officer's patrol car involved in the multi-agency high-speed chase shows a red car flying down Interstate 94 in Calhoun County.
The pursuit was started by a sergeant with the Calhoun County Sheriff's Office and hit speeds of 125 mph.
Video shows the vehicle weaving in and out of traffic, driving along the shoulder and avoiding spike strips.
Detectives with the Albion Department of Public Safety say a 38-year-old man was shot in the leg at a home on North Monroe Street in Albion just minutes before the chase stated.
Albion Department of Public Safety Detective Justin Reniger said, “We have not determined a relationship or motive at this point and why they went to that location.”
Davis and Google were charged on Monday, but police have not found the weapon. They believe a revolver was used.
Police say it was Ballinger's description of the suspects and the vehicle that eventually led to the chase.
A sergeant with the sheriff's office said the vehicle finally blew a tire and eventually stopped in Emmett Township.
Reniger said, “I want to say somewhere around like six different cell phones were located inside that vehicle.”
Reniger said they are working to obtain a search warrant to go through those phones and both suspects have lengthy criminal histories.
Jeremiah Ballinger, the victim, was released from the hospital.
