Shots Fired During Trooper Chase

May 28, 2007--Posted at 7:45 a.m.

NORTH LITTLE ROCK, AR--State Police say they're looking for a Benton couple who sped away when a state trooper tried to stop their pickup truck for speeding on Interstate 40 -- and then fired shots at officers who chased them.

The 20-minute chase started about 9:20 Sunday morning.  A news release from state police said those in the pickup are believed to be 33-year-old Christopher Grady and 43-year-old Rebecca Burrier, who live at the same address in Benton. The release said a trooper patrolling I-40 near the Arkansas 365 interchange on the north side of Maumelle tried to stop the eastbound pickup after he saw it speeding, but the driver refused to stop. With the trooper in pursuit, the truck continued toward Little Rock, turned onto I-430 and headed south before leaving the interstate at the south Maumelle-Arkansas 100 exit.

Police said additional troopers had by then joined the chase and an occupant of the pickup fired shots from a handgun at the troopers. The release said none of the troopers was struck by any of the shots. The truck was abandoned at the end of a dead-end road and its occupants fled, the release said. A resident of the area later told officers he had taken a man and a woman to a service station in the Morgan area when they asked for his help. State police are asking for the public's help in finding Grady and Burrier.
