Wanted Ringgold motorcyclist arrested after fleeing and crashing in Catoosa County
According to a Catoosa County Sheriff's incident report, on October 8th, 2020, at approximately 8:55 PM, deputies were dispatched to Raven Lane in reference to a subject identified as Scottie Ray Talley, 30 of Ringgold there with warrants through the Catoosa County Sheriff's Office for probation violation. A short time later, Corporal Cunningham and Deputy Henry arrived on the scene. While the deputies were looking for Talley, they heard a motorcycle startup. According to the report, Talley is known to ride a blue Harley Davidson. Corporal Cunningham called over the radio that the Talley took off down Boynton Drive towards Hoover Road. Deputy Cantrell had just turned onto Hoover Road from Battlefield Parkway and observed the motorcycle traveling at a high rate of speed towards his direction. Deputy Cantrell initiated his emergency equipment, lights, and siren in an attempt to stop Talley. Talley then accelerated at a higher rate of speed and ran the red light at Hoover and Battlefield Parkway, showing no regard for the safety of the public. Talley then went across multiple lanes, hit a curb, and crashed in the grass just before the interstate. The registration on the vehicle came back to a Suzuki motorcycle, not the Harley Davidson it was displayed on. The motorcycle also did not have any insurance on it as required by the state. Deputy Cantrell placed the Talley under arrest and had him checked out by Puckett EMS, who advised he was ok to be transported. Talley was transported to the Catoosa County Jail, where he was served the two valid warrants and charged with fleeing/attempting to elude, reckless driving, driving without valid insurance, removing or affixing license, and several other traffic violations.
