Suspect Hits Madison County Deputy With Vehicle

A chase in Madison County led to the suspect hitting a Madison County deputy with the stolen vehicle he was driving. According to the  Madison County Sheriff’s Office,  a man who was released from a Tennessee jail on Sunday, October 19th, was driving a stolen 1966  Chevy truck  towards Madison County. Deputies spotted the vehicle on Highway 25/70 and the suspect, Daniel Burrell, led them on a chase. Burrell attempted to ram into a deputy’s vehicle multiple times. Another deputy also attempted to block the suspect on Henry Worley Road.  When that deputy realized the suspect wasn’t going to slow down or stop, he got out of the patrol car. That’s when deputies said Burrell swerved towards the deputy and struck him at a high rate of speed. The stolen truck got away for a brief period of time until deputies located it and took Burrell into custody on Paw Paw Road. The injured deputy was taken to the hospital,  treated and released. Daniel Burrell was charged with Felony Assault with a Deadly Weapon on a Government Official, Felony Flee to Elude Arrest, Felony Possession of a Stolen Motor vehicle, several counts of Damage to Property, and Traffic Violations.
