ATLANTA, GA- A check of jail records Monday revealed that a man accused of running from police with a child inside the vehicle, has been released from jail. Kadeem Fletcher who police said crashed and a child immediately ejected was released from jail Sunday night on a 42,000 bond.
His girlfriend’s 7-year-old was thrown out of the backseat window as the car flipped through the air.
According to Georgia State Patrol, the pursuit began Monday when a trooper tried to pull over Fletcher on I-20 eastbound near Moreland Avenue around 7:20 a.m.
The suspect was driving an Audi belonging to his girlfriend, and aside from not having a valid driver’s license, police are not sure what prompted him to run from them.
Fletcher quickly changed lanes and made an exit from I-20 at Gresham Road. The trooper was not able to continue the pursuit. Fletcher crashed the vehicle shortly thereafter. He is charged with speeding, reckless driving, fleeing and eluding an officer, hit-and-run, driving unlicensed and causing serious injury by vehicle.
