MPD: Driver Arrested After Shooting At Officer

Madisonville Police arrest a man they say fired several shots at an officer during a chase. Police arrested Jessie Gobin, 29, of Hanson, just before 7 a.m. after receiving a tip that he was driving along Thompson Road.

Last night, an officer tried to pull Gobin over for driving on a suspended license near the intersection of Whittington Drive and Island Ford Road.

According to police, Gobin didn’t stop and tried to flee the scene, then fired several shots at the officer.

Eventually, Gobin lost control of his car near Nebo Rd. and Quinten Drive, exiting the right shoulder and rolling several times.

Gobin was ejected from the car, and police say he tried to flee the scene on foot into a wooded area.

Investigators found a gun and shell casings at the crime scene. The officer was not hurt.

Gobin was taken to Baptist Health for his injuries. Charges are pending while he is receiving medical treatment.
