Bradley County Car-Chase Suspect Identified

Bradley County Deputies are on the trail of Derrick Leon Middlebrooks Jr. Middlebrooks led law enforcement on a car chase that started in Bradley County and ended in Hamilton County Friday afternoon. He crashed on I-75 near Exit 4.

That’s the last time anybody saw him. Middlebrook stands five feet seven inches tall and weighs 145 pounds. He has black dreads with frosted tips.

Steve Lawson, Sheriff at Bradley County says,  “We followed up. brought the car back up here, did our forensic stuff on the car. We’re making sure that we’re right. And, they issued warrants on Middlebrooks. Eighteen counts of warrants. Aggravated assault was, I believe, three of the charges with an auto for the officers, and then other traffic violations.
