MEMPHIS, TN (localmemphis.com) - 21-year-old Demetriez Scott is in jail and being held without bond for Thursday's carjacking and police chase.
Scott is accused of carjacking a 2000 Ford Mustang Thursday morning in southeast Memphis. The victim told police she was stopped at the light at Goodlett Rd. and Knight Arnold Rd. when a car pulled up beside her and an armed man jumped out of the front passenger seat. She said the man forced her out of her car, jumped in and drove off.
Officers located the victim's car a short time later in the 500 block of Haynes with two men inside, but when they tried to pull the car over, the men took off. After a brief pursuit, the two men jumped out of the car in the area of Southern Ave. and Greer St. and took off running. Scott was caught and taken into custody.
