While chasing Parks, the officer was informed that Parks had approximately 60 felony warrants, including burglary, entering auto, fraud, and multiple vehicle thefts in Dougherty County and surrounding areas.

Police say Parks did not pull over during the chase until they drove down a road blocked by a train and the men in the car chose to get out and run.

Albany police said by the end of the chase, a dozen officers were pursuing the stolen car.


Parks was arrested and charged with theft by conversion, obstruction of officers, driving without a license, fleeing and eluding police, speeding, and reckless driving - in addition to the dozens of outstanding warrants he also faces.

A 27-year-old man and 19-year-old man who were passengers in the stolen car were also arrested.
