Jefferson County Deputies have added additional charges to the already long list of imposed charges against Reico Derrell Terry. Terry is now being charged with Loitering for the Purposes of Drugs and Tampering with Physical Evidence. It was discovered that Terry had attempted to destroy evidence of illegal narcotics while he was running from Deputies. He led Deputies on an extensive chase that ended with Terry failing to stop at an intersection where the signal was red. He drove into the path of an oncoming diesel truck. This collision killed his 16-year-old son, who was a passenger in the back seat. It was initially thought that Deputies had ended the pursuit with Terry, however, after supervisory review, it was confirmed that Law Enforcement was still trailing the fleeing vehicle.  ALEA is still investigating the crash to see if charges will be filed against Reico Terry in the death of his son.
