Fugitive In Stolen Patrol Car Goes On Violent Crime Spree

Multi-State crime sprees, stealing police cars, and shooting up homes sounds like the plot right out of a movie. However, a suspect from Georgia led officers on a pursuit through multiple southern states, all over missing out on game night.

All Started With a Little FOMO

The suspect Cody James Dimmett, 28, began the ordeal by shooting his neighbors home, after they wouldn't let him come over for game night.

According to WSBTV, the Cobb county man fired multiple shots into his neighbors home, injuring one resident in the shoulder. SWAT was sent in to search Dimmett's home, but he was not there.

At that point, they believed he had fled in a red Camry. Hoover police in Alabama attempted to apprehend him.

Stealing A Police Car

According to WREG, Alabama police ended the pursuit of Dimmett. At 12;30p.m., Southhaven police officer ran Dimmett's plates and saw that he was wanted in another state.

Officer Roy Hurst, assigned to the FBI Safe Streets Task Force in North Mississippi, followed the suspect into South Memphis, attempted to stop Dimmett. According to Chief Macon Moore, Hurst was shot in the arm.

Hurst went to the hospital for care and has since been released. During the altercation, Dimmett stole Hurst's unmarked police car and took off.

Hitting Arkansas

In St. Francis County, Arkansas, officers tried to stop Dimmett for speeding on the 1-40. He would not stop for the Palestine police officers.

As he led officers on a pursuit, he shot at deputies, but no one was injured. Dimmett crashed the police vehicle and took up refuge behind an area home.

SWAT took Dimmett into custody after a six-hour stand-off. Officers said that he came quietly and is now in the St. Francis County Jail. According to Chief Moore, the FBI Memphis Division is in charge of the investigation.

β€œThe Southaven Police Department has been overwhelmed by support from our citizens and from our law enforcement partners during this event. We ask that you keep our injured officer and other officers that were involved in resolving this situation in your prayers.”

Chief Macon Moore

Multi-State Work

Agencies across multiple states had to work together to bring this incident to a conclusion. Thankfully, no other officers were injured through the course of apprehending Dimmett.

  1. He will be back out on the streets by now, If he want before a Democratic judge and with a cash pile for wrongful arrest.

  2. Good work by the law officers... So glad we have them...Not only pray for the injuried but all others in line of duty...In fact all....Last days before the coming of the Lord people are getting more lawless But when we pray, our heavenly Father who sees all and knows all is watching over...We must ask his help in carrying for the law that He made... Remember the TEN COMMANDMENTS ????? THAT IS THE REASON THEY ARE OUT OF SIGHT.... But not out of God's mind...... God please protect our law officer and any who protect the good morals.

  3. How can you say that is a crime spree when we know it is only a little peaceful demonstration. No harm done right? No I have not made this comment before...

  4. America needs to bring back the firing squad and hanging. Then when the proof is clear like this one make the punishment swift. Let the guilty choose their own death...one of the two.

  5. What an idiot! Sounds like this is not the first time this fool has run afoul of the law, but this stunt is way up on my WTF was this fool thinking meter.

  6. Great work guys. Now to figure out all the charges and the places he needs to answer in court for all these crimes. The shooting of the Officer hopefully carries the most time.

  7. Guess this guy hasn't heard the word no before. His neighbor said no to him. Why didn't he go out and just charge a TV or whatever on his card and watch game night any time he wants. Why do young people think everybody has to do for them and make them happy instead of doing for themselves. And than, there's always a bar showing game night. So now he ends up in jail where he can't see game night when he just had to go to a bar for one night. Gees. Maybe he is taking game night too religiously and he should find something else for entertainment.
