18-year-old Andrea Samy Shehata was driving his 2010 white Nissan 370Z on Murfreesboro Pike on May 1 alongside two similar cars as they were being observed by police. Shehata and one other vehicle suddenly took off at a high rate of speed and Officer Hausman attempted a traffic stop on both vehicles for drag racing. Speeds reached over 100 mph in a 45 mph zone with Shehata splitting between cars as he crossed multiple lanes of traffic. He then merged onto Briley Parkway, where Nashville traffic was doing what it does, and stopped him in a traffic backup. He pulled to the side of the road and was taken into custody on multiple charges.
