The Bartholomew County Sheriff’s Department and Nashville Police Department have released dash cam video of the pursuit of 18-year-old Xavier Scrogham by Nashville Police Department reserve officer Leonard Burch on Aug. 29.
The teen was killed in a crash that occurred about 10 minutes after Burch, who was off duty, started a pursuit in excess of 100 mph on U.S. 31 near Taylorsville.
Burch has resigned from the department, and the Bartholomew County Sheriff’s Department has launched a criminal investigation into the actions of Burch.
During the chase, Burch tells dispatchers by cellphone that speeds reached up to 120 miles per hour.
