He said is ongoing, the school are criminal charges or not. Continued from Front exited 1-75 South again at Exit 188, where it failed to negotiate a right turn at the end of the off ramp. The car then slid across Collier Road, narrowly missing another vehicle. Its rear end then made contact with the ditch on the opposite side of CoUier Road, causing it to lose control and over- turn. Haskins then approached the upside-down car with his gun drawn and saw Pippins with his hands up sticking out of the car. Haskins told Pippins to crawl out and lay on the ground, but Pippins instead went to his knees before standing back up and try- ing to pull away. Sullivan, Barkley and Haskins then took Pippins back to the ground and handcuffed him while two female pas- sengers, Diamond Greer and Santana Jones, were also handcuffed. Haskins also discovered an unin- jured three-year-old girl who was safely extracted from inside the wrecked vehicle. Deputies discov- ered Pippins' license was suspended while Greer was determined to be the child's mother. They also found the car's license plate came back to a 2018 Honda HR-V out of Brookhaven, and the car's registration and insurance information were not found. Haskins found inside the car a Green FNH .45 caliber handgun reported stolen out of Clayton County with a fully loaded magazine. He also found a small book bag lying on the car's roof that contained marijuana, a grinder and a digital scale. Both passen- gers denied knowledge of the gun or drugs. When Haskins told Pippins of the discovery, he first asked for a lawyer before saying he didn't want the passengers to get in trouble. Despite Pippins saying, 'Tll take the charge" Haskins told him his admission was inadmissible because he had already asked for an attorney. While none of the oc- cupants appeared injured, they all requested to be taken to a hospital. The passengers and the child were taken to Macon's Medical Center Navicent Health while the driver was taken to the Monroe County Hospital. Both Greer, 24, and Jones, 25, will each be charged with possession of marijuana, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, theft by receiving stolen property and posses- sion of drug related objects. Neither had been booked into the Monroe County Jail as of presstime. Meanwhile, Pippins, 28, was booked into the Mon- roe County Jail on Oct. 10 and charged with felony fleeing or attempting to elude, possession of a fire- arm during the commis- sion of a felony; possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, theft by receiving stolen property, possession of marijuana, possession of drug related objects, reckless conduct, failure to stop at a stop sign, failure to maintain lane, driving in the emergency lane, failure to use due regard, following too closely, failure to use a turn signal when changing lanes, driving while license suspended, operation of an unregistered vehicle, hav- ing no insurance and use of license plates to misrepre- sent a vehicle. .
