Mother With Infant Evades Police 100 mph On I65 Charged

MILLERSVILLE/WHITE HOUSE TENNESSEE: (Smokey Barn News) – Millersville Police have charged a Murfreesboro woman with Felony-Evading-With-A-Deadly-Weapon and Reckless-Endangerment after she was allegedly clocked by police going 100 miles per hour with an infant in the vehicle on I65 Saturday morning.

According to Millersville Police, around 7:30 Saturday morning, 20-year-old Taylor Renee Delk Parson of Murfreesboro was allegedly driving at a high rate of speed on I65 through Millersville when a Millersville Officer spotted her vehicle and gave pursuit.

The Millersville Officer tried to initiate a traffic stop for speeding on the interstate within the Millersville city limits. The pursuit went several miles at speeds up to 100 miles an hour, according to Millersville Police.

Determining the danger to citizens was too high in the heavy traffic, the officer chose to discontinue the pursuit, according to Millersville Police. The officer then turned off his blue lights and continued onto exit 108 in White House. After exiting the interstate the officer coincidentally spotted the vehicle and again attempted to make a traffic stop.

With the assistance of White House Police, Parson stopped at Raymond Hirsch Parkway and Hwy 76 MAP and was taken into custody without incident. It was then that police discovered that an infant (about 2 to 3-month-old) was in the vehicle.

Due to the child’s age, the baby was transported to a local hospital for evaluation, according to Robertson County EMS.

Parson was charged with Felony-Evading-With-A-Deadly-Weapon (vehicle) and Reckless-Endergment for allegedly endangering the child and the public. She was transported to the Sumner County Jail under a $10,000 bond but, according to Sumner County jail, was released ROR.  Parson’s court date is February 12 at 9 am.

Millersville Police, White House Police, Roberton Couthy EMS and the White House Fire Department responded to the scene.
