At 1:35 a.m. Sunday, officers attempted a traffic stop on 22-year-old Destiny Amari Bradfield after clocking her traveling at 67 mph in a 40 mph zone on Harding Pike. She initially stopped, and as an officer approached her window, she fled at a high rate of speed. Ten minutes later, Belle Meade PD observed her turning into the one-way entry of a neighborhood and were able to lay spike strips across the exit. She drove almost a quarter-mile after crossing the spike strips, then fled from the vehicle on foot after abandoning the vehicle in a random driveway — leaving her wallet full of identification cards in the front seat. A short time later, another vehicle approached the abandoned vehicle traveling extremely slowly. During a traffic stop, Bradfield was found pretending to be asleep under a blanket in the back seat of that car.
Destiny Amari Bradfield of Hickory Trace Drive in Nashville, TN, was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on July 31st, charged with felony evading arrest with a motor vehicle. She is free on a $2,500 bond.
NOTE: Bradfield was booked as ‘Bradfeild’ in all Nashville CJIS systems.
