The Washington County Sheriff’s Office says Jacob Davis, 20, led a game warden on a chase from Wayne County, Miss. into Washington County, Ala. Deputies say Davis tried to ram the game warden with his truck. Deputies also say a passenger in the truck, 21-year-old Caleb Strickland, pulled out a rifle and started firing at the game warden.
