Second local multi-county pursuit this week ends with arrest in Baker County

Carjacking in downtown Jacksonville ended in Baker County after deputies made a successful PIT maneuver.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Deputies in Baker County ended a multi-county vehicle chase that began in Jacksonville on Fri., Nov. 3.


The pursuit began when the suspect, Bobby Gene Clemons, carjacked a vehicle in downtown Jacksonville. Clemons fled from police, driving recklessly out of the county. He led the chase on Interstate 10 and crossed over into Columbia County.

After some time, the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office was able to flatten the vehicle’s tires with stop sticks. The suspect turned off onto US Highway 441. With the car’s tires blown out, Baker County deputies successfully stopped the vehicle using a PIT (precision immobilization technique) maneuver.
