A car chase that started on Highway 278 in the Rockmart area ended with a crash and an arrest in Cedartown this morning, according to Polk County police on the scene.

Patrolman Cody McBride was on Highway 278 when he said he clocked a silver late model BMW going 73 mph with radar. He said he pulled onto the roadway and attempted to pull over the car, “when the driver floored it to 120 mph,” he said.

“They were going at 100 mph on East Avenue when the chase ended with a crash,” he said.

Neither occupant was hurt when the BMW struck an air conditioning unit at Gladden Services and came to a stop.

McBride said the driver, Ty Christian Trimble, 40, then got out of the car and was apprehended after a short foot chase at Cedartown Automotive. He so far faces reckless driving charge.

More charges are pending against Trimble, McBride said.

Business owners angered at new Braves stadium parking plan

ATLANTA (AP) — Some business owners near the Atlanta Braves' new stadium in the suburbs say they've invested in improvements, and hoped to earn back part of the money by charging fans to use their parking spaces on game days.But they are now learning about an ordinance passed earlier this year that outlaws property owners within a half-mile of the stadium from charging for parking during games.The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports (http://bit.ly/297Z0Xz) that the ordinance closes off potential revenue for dozens of businesses that own more than 10,000 private spaces — many of which could compete with the team for parking revenue.County officials say the law is necessary for public safety.The newspaper reports that for thousands of fans, the restriction could mean fewer parking options on game days.___Information from: The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, http://www.ajc.com
