Police gave chase and at one point fired their weapons in an effort to shoot out a tire on the subject’s car. Basey crashed twice before coming to a stop and running into a heavily wooded area, where a police K9 assisted in his capture. Basey has previously been charged with nine offenses in Madison County in just the past two years. His most recent charge, domestic battery, was August 16.
