18-year-old Ronny Edmonds sped past a THP Trooper on January 19th and crossed several lanes of traffic, nearly colliding with another vehicle. The Trooper attempted a traffic stop, and Edmonds slowed his white BMW as if he were complying. Suddenly, Edmonds accelerated to 90 mph and sped away. Due to the snow and ice covering the road, it was not safe to pursue in real time; however, the Trooper recorded his license plate number. Troopers relocated to his neighborhood and observed him pulling into his driveway on Jay Street just twenty minutes later. Edmonds was taken into custody. A bag containing 12 grams of marijuana was found in the center console.
Ronny Edmonds of Jay Street in Nashville, TN, was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on January 19, charged with evading arrest in a motor vehicle and drug possession.
