Prosecutor Kym Worthy has charged Rodney Martez Holland, 26, (DOB: 11/27/1995), of Detroit, in connection with fleeing and eluding police officers.

On April 22, 2022, at approximately 12:46 a.m., Detroit police officers located the defendant in a stolen vehicle at a gas station in the 21740 block of Schoolcraft Road in Detroit.

As officers exited the vehicle, it is further alleged that Defendant Holland fled from the scene before being apprehended at a residence in the 15740 block of Grandville Street. Medics arrived on scene and transported the defendant to a local hospital for treatment.
