According to information from the Milton Police Department, Vickey Rice was driving along Interstate 64 when her boyfriend, Terry Bell, pulled up along side of her and fired a shot into the car.

Deputies pursued his car from Story’s Run Road to the Hobson area of Middleport before the car pulled off along State Route 7.

Deputies approached Bell, who was compliant at first, but then refused to get out of the car and stopped following commands issued by the deputies. Bell was forcefully removed from the car for being non-compliant and the possibility of him still having a gun.

Bell was placed under arrest for having a warrant out of the Meigs County Court of Common Pleas and Meigs County Court.
