48-year-old Rick Stellick was jailed on April 10th after refusing to comply with police commands during a traffic stop on Northgate Drive. Police pulled over Stellick driving his Lexus for failing to stop for a red light. Once they were able to identify him, they asked him to pull into Cracker Barrel so that he would be off the roadway, but Stellick said that he would not move his vehicle. Police then instructed him and the passenger to step out of the car. The passenger complied, but Stellick said he would not leave his vehicle. The officer approached the driver’s side, and Stellick started driving forward. An officer finally got him to stop his vehicle and reached into the driver’s side window to open the door; he took hold of Stellick’s arm to remove him from the car. Stellick pulled away, but the officer was able to place him in handcuffs and transport him to booking.
Rick Stellick was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on April 11th, charged with resisting arrest. A judicial commissioner set his bond at $500.
