Ga. Officer's Cell Phone Deflects Suspect's Bullet

March 08, 2013  | 

A Savannah-Chatham (Ga.) Police officer escaped serious injury, when her cell phone deflected a bullet fired by a murder suspect at the end of a vehicle pursuit, reports the Savannah Morning News.

Officer Rebekah Gregory was transported to Memorial University Medical Center following the Wednesday evening pursuit. Suspect Anthony B. Parrish Jr., 21, was also treated for minor injuries.

The pursuit began after Parrish stole a police car and attempted to strike an officer. He eventually crashed into the wood line of Interstate 16 between the Interstate 516 and Chatham Parkway exits.

Parrish opened fire on pursuing units. Officers returned fire and took him into custody. Earlier that day, police charged Parrish with murdering Marray Martin, 20, at a party.

If the suspect was charged earlier in the day for Murder, what the hell is he doing on the streets. Seems something is wrong in their criminal justice system or the Judge who allowed bail.

Sounds like an escape might have occurred. Regardless, I'm glad to hear that Officer Gregory is ok.

Stay Safe

A warrant may have been issued but Parrish may not have been picked up on it?? The Good Lord definitely had His hands on protecting the officer.

@Motor Jock: Your statement is full of ignorance, it's unfortunate how many people jump to a pea-brained conclusion before getting the facts.

I can just hear the Apple ad now: "Getting shot at by a murder suspect? We have an app for that!"
