Tallahassee, Florida - November 16, 2011 -

A pursuit from Madison County to Leon County ended on Carrin Drive in Tallahassee, according to a spokesperson with the Florida Highway Patrol.

The suspect, Keevis Dobson, was originally fleeing from the Madison County Sheriff's Office after a domestic dispute. FHP took over the chase and pursued the suspect until he reached Tallahassee.

When Dobson got too close to the city, FHP decided to end the pursuit. FHP troopers followed the suspect around the area of Apalachee Parkway before apprehending him.

Keevis Dobson, 24, was arrested.

    The insurance companies are one of the largest Lobbyist on the hill. Therefore, a stolen car or the pursuit thereof is more important than human life. The owner of the car most surely has insurance; because the powerful insurance companies and the state of FL would suspend your Drivers Lic if you don't purchase their product.Chasing the suspect into a residental area is excessive force. Yet had the perp not been caught the Insurance Conglomorate would have to replace the stolen vehicle. That is the bottom line.....

    The front of the car hit the pole hard and was indeed wrapped around the pole. Judging by the damage to the driveway masonry and the damage to the car, the ghettothughoodrat was going quite fast upon impact.

    The photo appears to show the front of the car up against the pole, NOT wrapped around it as you suggest, so I don't understand your comment. What would that lend to this report(I assume that is what you are referring to since I know you don't have a copy of the crash report, which will show the car hit a pole)if the pic shows it hit a pole?

    The chase came through Waukeenah about 12-12:30. I was amazed at how fast it passed, they looked to be going well over 100 when went through the intersection. There 7-8 marked and unmarked FHP and Jefferson County deputies behind him. It is luck no one was hurt.

    He will face charges in Madison,Taylor,Jefferson, and Leon since he took that route to Tally doing speeds in excess of 100 mph. So felony eluding,auto theft,reckless and careless driving and domestic violence along with speeding and other charges pending are on his plate. I bet he didn't wake up and decide he was going to do this today.

      He's been in trouble several times with the law in the past couple of years. This is his(thug) life.

    Something needs to be done. A male attempted to steal my car Sunday at 9am when my husband busted him in the process however he fled and was not caught. Things are getting really bad around here now.

    Seems like alot of criminal knotheads about lately. Murderers, robberies, grand thefts, pedophiles. Maybe laws are to easy and laxidaisy for criminals. Wish the lawmakers were tougher on them, guess thats our taxes are going for something else

      It's not the laws. If(as you say) the laws worked before, then it isn't the laws. It is the enforcement of the laws. This is not the lawmakers issue. This is a judicial issue.

      I don't think the laws are the problem. The law exist and there are there aren't enough officers around to catch every criminal in the act every time. The problem is with the PEOPLE who decide to break the laws! Blame them...punish them!!
