JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - A driver didn’t get far when he tried to speed away from Jackson State University police right in front of Jackson’s city police headquarters.

The brief chase Thursday ended in the arrest of the driver, 28-year-old Victor Gray, and injuries to another person whose SUV was clipped by the fleeing car.

The Clarion-Ledger reports (https://on.thec-l.com/1jQORjh ) Gray was arguing with a female JSU student on campus around 9 a.m. Thursday. JSU spokeswoman Olivia Goodheart says Gray pushed the student to the ground, took the keys to her Infiniti SUV and fled.

Witnesses called campus police and a JSU officer pursued, believing Gray had kidnapped the student.

The chase damaged six vehicles, including four parked cars.



Goodheart says JSU police charged Gray with domestic violence. City police don’t plan separate charges.
