BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) — A Houma man accused of a high-speed police chase with State Police in East Baton Rouge was arrested months after the incident in south Louisiana.
On the afternoon of October 19, 2021, according to an affidavit, State Police saw a Nissan sedan with Texas plates speeding 103 miles per hour on I-110. Authorities said the suspect’s vehicle continued to speed, exiting onto US 190 before suddenly stopping at the foot of the overpass.
The suspect was identified by authorities in the affidavit as Marquie Mosely, 23 of Houma.
Arrest documents said after stopping, Mosely exited the sedan and raised his hands while yelling as he approached the trooper’s unit. The trooper responding drew his weapon and told Mosely to go back into his vehicle, according to an affidavit. After telling Mosely to return to the vehicle, a passenger started to exit the vehicle and as the trooper was telling the passenger to stay in the vehicle, Mosely fled. According to documents, the vehicle took off with the front passenger door open and the person’s hands out of the door.
The affidavit stated a chase ensued as Mosely drove west on US 190 before exiting onto the US 61 exit ramp where his vehicle “briefly” went airborne after running off the road. Arrest documents said the chase continued as Mosely drove recklessly as he traveled in the wrong direction on US 190 and turned into opposite lanes on US 61. A trooper said they lost sight of Mosely’s vehicle.
Investigators discovered Mosely’s identity through a car rental company that owned the vehicle.
Mosely was arrested months after the chase on Sunday, May 15 in Terrebonne Parish. He faces charges of reckless operation, aggravated flight from an officer, resisting arrest, aggravated obstruction of a highway, speeding, and no driver’s license.
