High Speed Chase Sentencing

Tommy Hollis

A White County man will spend two years in jail after being arrested by police for fleeing.

Beebe Police Chief Wayne Ballew says 44-year old Tommy Dewayne Hollis, of Searcy, was sentenced to 24 months in the Arkansas Department of Correction for felony fleeing and endangering the welfare of a minor in the first degree.

Detectives observed Hollis’ vehicle parked in a wooded area near the Northside Church of Christ on West Mississippi Street. As the detectives tried to make contact, Hollis reportedly drove away.

A pursuit ensued that reached more than 120 mph. Officers from Beebe, Cabot, and Lonoke County joined the chase which lasted over 25 miles.

The vehicle finally stopped on Highway 89 outside of Cabot after Cabot police deployed spike strips.     MORE
