26-year-old Robert Elgen Freeman was taken into custody for evading arrest by motor vehicle and reckless driving on February 24th. On September 12th, officers noticed a motorcycle with a blue gas tank and roll cage around the engine speed past them on Old Hickory Boulevard, where they were conducting traffic enforcement. Then, after another officer described the motorist on the traffic channel, they tried to conduct a traffic stop on him. Still, Freeman accelerated away after doing a wheelie, passing citizens who were stopped at the Old Hickory Boulevard and Second Street light. He fled the scene after turning left and going the wrong way into Andrew Jackson’s Hermitage. Officers identified Freeman via social media posts, which showed him wearing the same helmet and driving the same bike.
