The driver, later identified as Tettleton, reportedly jumped out of his vehicle while the car was still moving after officers trapped the car on Kali Oaka Road.

Semmes PD said a high-speed chase involving a stolen vehicle ended after the driver exited the vehicle and attempted to flee but got hit by the vehicle he was driving.

An officer tased Tettleton as Tettleton tried to jump a fence, causing Tettelton to fall to the ground in the path of the moving vehicle. Tettleton reportedly was run over by the vehicle and ended up getting his leg broken.

Tettleton will be charged with receiving stolen property and attempting to elude, according to police.  Tettleton reportedly had multiple felony warrants as well.
