High speed chase suspect was out of jail on murder charge

HAZEL GREEN, AL (WAFF) - We have new information about a woman involved in a high- speed chase in Hazel Green with Madison County Deputies.

Brandi Michelle Seagroves, 27, was out on bond on a murder charge when deputies arrested her after Monday evening's high speed chase.

According to these court records, Seagroves was out on bond on murder, robbery and burglary charges that stem from last year.

Seagroves and three others allegedly were a part of a deadly home invasion in Owens Cross Roads February 2015.

One of her accomplices, Richard William Taylor, was shot by the homeowner and now she's being held responsible for his death.

Two other people are also charged in connection with the case.

But, Seagroves is now behind bars again.

On Monday, she and two other men tried to run away from police during a high speed chase on Joe Quick Road.

Deputies said Seagroves and another man jumped out of the truck and were arrested shortly after.

The driver kept going until he drove through LeAnne Sharp's backyard and crashed at a private business on Joe Quick Road.

"I was taking my little girl to a friend's house and the guy was coming down the road and there were cops chasing him," said Sharp. "I seen him run through the backyard and he hit the fence in my backyard."

Deputies believe the driver was trying to avoid drug charges from an active meth investigation.

Authorities have yet to confirm Seagroves' role in the case but she is now looking at a new charge of manufacturing drugs.

The Madison County District Attorney's office said Seagroves was out on bond because she's not facing a capital murder charge.

However, they plan to ask a judge to revoke Seagroves' bond because of her involvement in the high speed chase.
