Marquise Shivers

A man who has been incarcerated on at least three other occasions faces no bond after he crashed his vehicle into a patrol car, according to a report.

Marquise Shivers, 25, was in possession of 15.1 grams of cocaine Friday at his time of arrest, police reported. The cocaine has an estimated street value of about $1,510.

According to the Georgia Department of Corrections website, Shivers served nearly three years in prison in 2011, almost 10 months in 2012 and more than two months in 2013.

According to the police report, an officer was attempting to make a traffic stop when Shivers crashed his vehicle into the patrol car. Shivers then fled in his vehicle and crashed again before fleeing on foot, the officer reported.

After a short pursuit, the officer was able to arrest Shivers near Rigdon Road and Eighth Street.

Shivers was charged with the following: driving while license suspended or revoked, duty upon striking a fixture, failure to maintain lane, fleeing or attempting to elude a police officer, interference with government property, driving with no lights, no proof of insurance, obstruction of a law enforcement officer, operating a vehicle with an open container, possession and use of drug-related objects, reckless driving, stop sign violation, violation of parole and selling or manufacturing any controlled substance with intent to distribute.

A judge denied bond for Shivers on his charge of violation of parole. According to jail officials, his bond for the other charges was over $20,000.
