Micah Hooker, 21, is the latest person to face charges in the MNPD’s continuing street racer enforcement effort after he sped away from a vehicle meet up where burnouts and other maneuvers were taking place at a commercial parking lot on Corporate Drive Saturday night. An MNPD helicopter crew watched as Hooker, behind the wheel of a 2020 green Dodge Challenger, turned his lights off in an unsuccessful effort to avoid police and almost hit two other motorists head-on.

Officers ultimately stopped the Challenger at Hamilton Church Road and Hobson Pike. Hooker was arrested and charged with felony reckless endangerment, felony evading arrest, driving on a suspended license, criminal trespassing and rioting due to the dangerous vehicle maneuvers that took place on Corporate Drive.

Hooker’s passenger, Bailee Nelson, 21, was also arrested and charged with criminal trespassing, rioting, and gun theft after a pistol in her purse was determined to have been stolen.
