A man wanted on a burglary warrant who crashed into three cars including a Cairo Police Department vehicle last week finally surrendered to authorities Friday, lawmen say.
Sean Eric Brinson, 49, a resident of Tennyson Street N.E. in Pelham, turned himself in at the Grady County Sheriff’s Office Friday morning, more than two days after he allegedly led authorities on a chase through Cairo that ended in multiple wrecks near South Broad Street.
Deputy Kelvin Nixon made contact with Brinson’s white Ford Explorer in the parking lot of Wal-Mart on Tuesday, June 22, at 8:17 p.m., according to his report. Nixon states he knew Brinson was wanted on a burglary warrant and conducted a traffic stop with the assistance of Cairo Police.
Nixon states, though, that while trying to arrest Brinson, he drove off and led authorities on a high speed chase.
Brinson was fleeing west on Sixth Avenue, S.E. when he struck the rear of a Cairo Police car stopped at an angle on Sixth facing east, according to the Georgia State Patrol.
Brinson hit the back end of the C.P.D. car, a 2015 Dodge Charger, with the front of his Explorer, the G.S.P. reports, then apparently lost control of his S.U.V.
The G.S.P. report goes on to state that Brinson drove across one yard then into another where he struck the rear of two other parked cars, a 2020 Chevrolet Bolt BV and a 2021 Toyota Corolla.
Luckily, none of the vehicles was occupied when the crashes happened.
After hitting the last two cars, the suspect fled on foot from the scene.
After turning himself in, Brinson was being held at Grady Detention Center on a felony charge of burglary 1st degree.
