Jimenez eventually crashed into a separate vehicle, both suspects fled the scene on foot.

Police apprehended the suspects moments later where they were arrested and booked into the Muscogee County Jail.

Workman is charged with obstruction of a law enforcement officer and possession and use of drug-related objects.

Jimenez faces 24 charges that include possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime, aggravated assault, and attempt to remove an officer's gun.

Both suspects are scheduled to appear in Recorder's Court Monday at 2 p.m.
