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.
