After a high-speed chase that reached up to 120 miles per hour, Smyrna Police arrested the driver and found out that the man they chased was wanted for attempted murder in Douglas County. 

According to a Smyrna Police news release, Samir Aaron Moore’s arrest stemmed from a Honda Accord speeding on East-West Connector at about 1:37 a.m. Thursday. When Police tried to do a traffic stop, 20-year-old Moore sped off.

Following a “brief pursuit,” along the East-West Connector and surrounding roads, police maneuvered to the rear right side of the Honda and applied the PIT maneuver, causing Moore and the Honda to spin out and stop. Police said the chase lasted for a few miles and ended peacefully with Moore surrendering. A video of Moore’s arrest from Smyrna police has been posted on social media.

Moore, of Marietta, was arrested and charged with reckless driving, fleeing from a police officer, speeding, and failure to maintain a lane. After running a check on Moore, police discovered an active warrant for attempted murder in Douglas County. 

Moore was arrested and booked into the Cobb County jail. Following the adjudication of the Cobb charges against him, Moore will be transferred to Douglas County to answer to the murder charges against him.
