Window Tint Stop In Greenbrier Ends With Attempted Murder Charge Wednesday

GREENBRIER, TENNESSEE: (Smokey Barn News)  —  Following a stop for window tint In Greenbrier Wednesday afternoon, a Nashville woman fled just missing a Greenbrier officer on foot. It was all caught on body camera footage. VIDEO HERE Hours later, that same driver and her passenger were arrested following a standoff /shootout with Nashville authorities.

Around 9:45 a.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 28, Greenbrier police reported they stopped 41-year-old Shamika Jones, a Nashville resident (pictured left) for her window tint, but then reported they noticed an odor of marijuana coming from her car.

Lt. Curt Allen with the Greenbrier Police Department told News 2 that the officer questioned Jones about the odor of marijuana, asking her if there was marijuana in the vehicle. According to News 2, Jones said there was and she had planned on smoking the marijuana. That would give the officer probable cause to search the vehicle, officials said.

Seconds later, the video shows the traffic stop taking an intense turn as Jones sped off, almost striking the Greenbrier officer.  The pursuit was called off a short time later when police say Jones allegedly drove into oncoming traffic.

Police deployed spike strips and damaged the car’s tires, however, as the car continued to flee, a passenger inside the vehicle (now identified as identified as 21-year-old Jonathan Cornish (pictured right)  allegedly began shooting through the window at the pursuing police cars, News 2 reports.

Police said the Nissan became disabled on Rural Hill Court in Antioch with the suspects inside. After negotiating for more than an hour, Jones and Cornish reportedly climbed out of the car and surrendered around 11:15 p.m. FULL STORY ON NEWS 2
