Adam Nolin, 33, is suspected of shooting dead his girlfriend Tia Randall, 27
A Michigan man suspected of murdering his girlfriend has been arrested after leading police on a chase that ended when he was run over.
Adam Nolin, 33, is suspected of shooting dead his girlfriend Tia Mae Randall, 27, Thursday in Wyoming, Michigan.
He was arraigned Friday in a hospital where he is being treated after an officer ran him down with a police SUV as Nolin shot at them while trying to flee on a busy highway.
Nolin has been charged with five felony counts including assault with intent to murder and fleeing police.
‘Arraigning at the hospital certainly isn’t the norm, but it’s not unheard of either,’ Wyoming Police Capt. James Maguffee said.
‘He is getting the treatment he needs, but we need the wheels of justice to turn. Judges will often make the accommodations to make that happen.’

The body of Nolin’s girlfriend was found Thursday morning at Creekside Estates mobile home.
The mother-of-two was killed by a single gunshot and police immediately identified Nolin as a suspect.
The investigation into shooting death of Tia Randall, a mother-of-two, and Nolin’s girlfriend, remains open
Police then released an alert for the public to be on lookout for Nolin, giving a broad physical description of him and his 1996 black Dodge pickup truck.
He was spotted in his trick and as police tried to pull him over Nolin hopped onto US 131.
Nolin crashed his truck into a concrete median then got out and ran on foot down the highway.
As he ran, Nolin shot at the officers chasing him.
One cop took the police SUV and ran Nolin down from behind. The event was captured on video by an onlooker.
He was transported to the hospital where he is in serious but stable condition and will remain until he is discharged and transferred to Kent County Jail.
‘It shows the willingness of our police officers in West Michigan to put themselves in harm’s way to protect this community,’ Maguffee said. ‘They got the guy in custody in an appropriate time frame and in an appropriate way and we’re very proud of them.’
In all, Nolin is charged with two counts of assault with intent to murder, fleeing police, carrying a concealed weapon and felony use of a firearm.
He has yet to be charged in the death of his girlfriend as the homicide investigation remains active.
‘There’s absolutely an underlying homicide investigation that continues and we’ll be close to wrapping that up and we’ll present that to the Kent County prosecutor at the appropriate time,’ Maguffee said.
