19-year-old Teanna Gardner & 18-year-old Monterio Taylor were jailed for fleeing the police when a traffic stop was initiated on I-24 Saturday night. Police tried to pull over a silver Hyundai Sonata for the left brake light not properly working. The driver of the vehicle, Gardner, fled at high speed. Detectives deployed spike strips which stopped the car before Shelby St. The back seat passenger, Taylor, got out of the car and ran. Police chased him on foot briefly before taking him into custody. It was later found that during the chase, Taylor threw a gun on the side of the interstate to try to get rid of it. There was a strong odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle. When officers searched Taylor’s body, they found 10 grams of marijuana.
