Rockdale chase

DeKalb County, GA (CBS46) A suspect wanted for aggravated assault is in custody after leading police on a high-speed chase spanning three counties.

Police in Newton County say they were responding to a shots fired call when they spotted the suspect, later identified as Henry Arnold, in a vehicle. A chase began and several officers pursued Arnold through Rockdale and into DeKalb County.

Police eventually performed a PIT maneuver and stopped Arnold's vehicle at the intersection of Covington Highway and Hanes Drive in Decatur. He crashed into several police cruisers in the process.

After the chase ended, an officer fired a shot at Arnold but didn't hit him. Arnold was taken to an area hospital but it wasn't related to the gunshot.

No officers were injured.

Several charges are pending.
