- ❌Jury Says ‘Guilty’ After Video of High-Speed Chase 🎥 Lake Charles LA Police Dashcam
Cody Davis didn’t mean to lead police on a high-speed chase, he claimed in court—his brakes failed.
His story failed too—after police dash-cam video of Davis attempting incredibly dangerous stunts at speeds of over 100 mph.
Officers of the Lake Charles, Louisiana, police department were alerted to a sighting of a possible stolen vehicle on April 10.
When the first unit arrived officers saw the suspect, 27-year-old Cody Davis.
When the officer turned on the lights, Davis took off—bashing vehicles out of his way.
He only made it about 10 blocks before he hit another vehicle at an intersection. This time he couldn’t drive away. The chase ended with Davis being dragged down and cuffed by deputies.
Cody Davis tried to convince the jury that he was an innocent man, the victim of a simple mechanical breakdown. He didn’t mean to drive though dense downtown traffic at 100 mp, he claimed—his brakes failed. But he couldn’t fool digital video.
Despite all the recorded evidence against him, Davis tried to lie his way out of the charges. “Davis’s testimony was a pathetic joke. It’s a shame that he was even able to do that. He committed perjury in front of that jury. I could not count the amount of lies that this man came up with,” said Robinson. ”And to come in there and testify after we have recorded jail phone calls of him saying, ‘I led officers on a high-speed chase,’ that are in direct contradiction to what he’s saying to the jury. It’s ridiculous.” Davis was found guilty of six charges: possession of weapon by a convicted felon, illegal possession of a stolen firearm, aggravated flight from an officer (during which he allegedly endangered human life), unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, obstruction of justice by tampering with evidence (for allegedly throwing gun out window), and aggravated criminal damage to property (for allegedly ramming into a vehicle on purpose). He is scheduled for a sentence hearing on Nov. 2. He faces stiffer penalties for being a habitual offender. - #regrann #Repost @copsvcameras #copsvcameras #copscaughtoncamera #police #cop
