This all happened after Williams led police and GSP troopers on a chase into Clayton County before authorities used spike strips and stop sticks to try and stop him. When that didn’t work, they used a PIT maneuver to stop the ambulance.

The ambulance crashed into a power pole at Tara Blvd. and Dixon Rd., nearly 10 miles away from the hospital.

Clayton deputies say Williams tried running off after the crash, but he was Tased and taken into custody.

A woman, who didn’t want to be identified, saw it all while returning to work from lunch.

“I thought, what in the world is he doing, stopping this ambulance because you don’t stop an ambulance when they are taking someone to the hospital?” the woman asked.
