According to a press release, Deputy Ellison received the call from CPD for assistance on Alabama 155 and saw a vehicle matching the description of a black Ford Mustang.

According to court records, Parks faces 12 traffic charges and multiple drug charges. He also faces charges for resisting arrest, attempting to elude, reckless endangerment and second-degree assault.

Records indicate that Price is facing charges of attempting to elude, multiple drug charges and an open container violation.

Price posted a $4,750 bail. Parks is in the Chilton County Jail with a bond set at $11,250.
