A man wanted for homicide resulting from the death of a Pleasantville man has been taken off the streets of South Jersey, but not before a police chase through three towns and a police officer was assaulted.

Around 10:30 Sunday night, according to a press release, Atlantic City police received a call that 27-year-old Marshall Coley, who was wanted for murder, was a passenger in a vehicle driving in Atlantic City.


Officers quickly found the car with Marshall Coley inside on Route 30, but the driver,  Latoya Golden, refused to stop for police. The vehicle fled westbound on Route 30 into Pleasantville and then into Absecon where Golden turned down a dead end street and stopped.

Both Golden, who resisted arrested, and Coley, who was arrested without incident, were taken into custody. While in a holding facility, Golden felt ill and was transported to ARMC-City. During her treatment, she assaulted a police officer and spit on him. She was additionally charged for this incident.

Coley was remanded to the Atlantic County Justice Facility. His bail had previously been set at $1 million. His bail was set at $50,000 for the additional charges from this incident. Golden is facing several charges, including hindering apprehension, eluding arrest, resisting arrest, and aggravated assault on a police officer. Her bail was set at $50,000.00.
