GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. - The man who led police on a chase that ended with a shootout on the U.S. 131 S-curve is being officially charged with the murder of his girlfriend.

Adam Nolin is expected to be arraigned Wednesday afternoon for the murder of Tia Randall.  Kent County Prosecutor Chris Becker announced the additional charges Wednesday morning.

Randall was shot and killed in a mobile home in Wyoming on September 27. While police searched for Nolin, he fled and headed northbound on U.S. 131. He crashed his pickup truck in the S-curve and got out and started running, while shooting at police.  A Grand Rapids police officer in a vehicle ran Nolin down to end the situation.

      @P…How would it be police brutality? The police can use whatever means and to any/all force necessary to take the suspect down. I don’t always side with police, as I believe they take their power of authority too far in a lot of situations, but this pos murdered his girlfriend, put innocent people in danger when he led police on a high speed chase, and opened fire on police. He’s lucky to be alive. He’s lucky police didn’t open fire on him. Should the police have been kind and gentle with him after his actions??? Hell no!

      Police brutality? The cop should have backed up and did it again. Personally, it disgusts me that subhumans like this guy even draw another breath. With the help of his lawyer, he’ll drag this out for months before he’s found guilty, and all that time you’ll be paying for his room and board in jail.
