A Liberty man is still at large after leading authorities on a high-speed chase before wrecking his SUV and fleeing on foot.
According to Sheriff Patrick Ray, Warren Glasby, 32, was already wanted for assault when the incident took place. The drama began when the Sheriff's Department received a call from central dispatch telling them that Glasby had picked up the victim of his alleged assault from the complainant's home in White County, and was on his way to DeKalb in a green 2004 Ford Explorer.
A county deputy reportedly spotted the SUV on Highway 53 in Liberty, where it passed several cars and took off at a high rate of speed. The officer activated his lights and siren to stop the vehicle, but it continued on to Highway 70 and turned west. The Ford then attempted to turn onto Old Highway 96, but the driver lost control of and it rolled over several times. Glasby’s passenger, 30-year-old Juanita Young was ejected in the crash, and was airlifted from the scene and flown to Erlanger Hospital in Chattanooga.
Glasby then apparently fled the scene on foot, headed toward Highway 96. Ray said the investigation is still being conducted. The suspect was last seen wearing blue jeans and a white tee shirt. If anyone has information as to his whereabouts please call central dispatch at 615-215-3000.
