    Well, the chase could have killed someone and so could the drunk driver. I’m glad they got him.

    To Vice Security: Too bad Sheriff Morgan has nothing to do with this, so don’t know why you are bring him up… This is between Baldwin County and FHP….. Being that he was DUI and coming from Foley….. this chase could have killed innocent people….

    I thought Sheriff Morgan was getting more in line with the other police agencies. I guess Baldwin County takes crime seriously. Vote Morgan out. Lets get a real cop in our top spot.

    Glad someone doesn’t believe in letting them go. Now lock him up and keep him.
