A Vicksburg resident faces several charges following a pursuit in Madison.

According to the Madison Police Department, on Wednesday, Sep. 28, at approximately 11:42 a.m., the Madison Police Department received information of a recently stolen vehicle that was in the area of the City of Madison.

A Madison police officer observed the stolen 2014 Chevrolet pick-up truck and attempted to initiate a traffic stop on Highland Colony Parkway at Lake Castle Road. The driver of the stolen vehicle refused to stop and fled south on Highland Colony Parkway into Ridgeland. A vehicle pursuit ensued.

Other Madison units arrived in the area and assisted as well as personnel from the Ridgeland Police Department and Madison County Sheriff’s Office. The stolen vehicle continued southbound on Highland Colony Parkway turning west onto Old Agency Road, then turning north onto Richardson Road and then east onto Steed Road.

The fleeing vehicle then turned north onto Sunnybrook Road. As the stolen vehicle approached Sunnybrook Road and Colony Park Boulevard, it entered into a field at which time the vehicle became disabled. The driver was apprehended without incident.

Several Madison police vehicles were struck and damaged by the fleeing vehicle during the course of the pursuit. There were no injuries and no other property damage was reported.

After his arrest, the driver of the stolen vehicle was identified as Jonathan S. Gray, age 30, of Vicksburg, MS. He was charged with Possession of a Stolen Vehicle, Felony Fleeing, three counts of Aggravated Assault on a Law Enforcement Officer, Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon, and Possession of a Stolen Firearm.

He was transported to the Madison County Detention Center where he awaits his initial court appearance in Madison Municipal Court.
