Tougher Penalties possible for those Who Flee Police Causing Injury or Death to an Officer

A State lawmaker has introduced a bill to toughen penalties against people who flee law enforcement causing an injury or death to the officer.
House Majority Leader William Lamberth introduced the Spencer Bristol Act in honor of the Hendersonville Police Officer who was killed in the line of duty on Dec. 30.
Bristol was pursuing a fleeing suspect on foot following a crash and high-speed car chase that began in Hendersonville. Bristol was struck by oncoming traffic during a foot pursuit across Interstate 65 and died as a result of his injuries.
