Fleeing Suspect Tries To Hit Greenbrier PD Head-On, Driver Captured After 21-Mile Pursuit

GREENBRIER, TENNESSEE: (Smokey Barn News) – A Nashville man is behind bars after he was clocked by Greenbrier Police moving at a high rate of speed through the city.

Officers observed the vehicle traveling through Greenbrier at a high rate of speed around 11:25 pm Saturday night. The vehicle was a dark-colored Ford Escape traveling southbound on Highway 41 S.  The vehicle failed to yield, according to Greenbrier Police Captain Todd Dorris.

During the pursuit, the vehicle (on two separate occasions) turned around and drove at Greenbrier Officer Adam Tate head-on. Officer Tate was able to avoid the first attempt but on the second attempt, he was not as lucky. As the suspect’s car drove at him, Tate was able to avoid a head-on collision but did strike the Ford Escape on the driver’s side front door. The impact damaged Tate’s vehicle in a “side swipe-type collision.”

The pursuit continued some 21 miles to the area of Post Rd and Hillwood Blvd in Nashville. MAP The pursuit ended when the suspect pulled into a driveway with a gate and was trapped. After a brief conversation with a Metro Police K9 and some impressive barking, the suspect surrendered and was taken into custody without incident.
