Webbie Arrested on Assault Charges After High Speed Chase

Baton Rouge native Webbie, 23, was arrested yesterday (September 14) and charged with felony eluding after leading police on a dangerous high-speed chase through Hattiesburg, Mississippi.

 

Police reports reveal that officers attempted to stop a 2009 Dodge Challenger for a routine traffic stop last Sunday on I-59 North at 3:30pm.

 

The driver ignored the officer’s flashing lights and began driving erratically before crashing into a black 1999 Mercury Cougar.

 

The driver of the Challenger kept going, and police temporarily gave up pursuit to assist the injured passengers of the other vehicle.

 

Later, authorities found the damaged Challenger abandoned in a Walmart parking lot, and eyewitnesses confirmed that three men exited the vehicle for a 1993 Ford Crown Victoria.

 

The vehicle was quickly tracked down and Webbie, real name Webster Gradney, was identified as the driver by the initial traffic stop authorities.

 

Webbie is also facing millions of dollars in lawsuits, amidst claims that he took money from several promoters, but failed to show up to perform at the concerts.
