AUTAUGA CO., AL (WSFA) -

The driver who attempted to elude Alabama State Troopers in 2014 on Interstate 65 in Autauga County, was eventually caught and was charged with numerous crimes, was denied youthful offender status by a Autauga County judge on Monday.

Nelson Bell,19, of West Palm Beach, FL was charged with attempted murder of a law enforcement officer, shooting into an occupied vehicle, burglary, two counts of receiving stolen property, and several traffic offenses out of Autauga and Elmore counties.

The situation started shortly after 2 p.m. on Aug. 14, according to Alabama State Trooper Sgt. Steve Jarrett, when a state trooper attempted to pull over a vehicle doing 91 mph near the 184 mile marker. That's just south of the Pine Level exit of I-65 near the Autauga/Chilton county line.

Bell, the driver of the red Toyota SUV, fled the scene in what was ultimately confirmed to be a stolen vehicle. Sgt. Jarrett says while in pursuit of the vehicle, the trooper was fired upon by the fleeing suspect, though no one was injured from the shooting.

Jarrett says another responding state trooper successfully deployed spike-strips and the vehicle crashed into the tree line along I-65 in the northbound direction approximately 8 miles south of Clanton.

Bell fled the vehicle on foot but was apprehended a short time later.
