Biggs observed that Campbell had taken one of his cars the previous day. Biggs then found Campbell back on his property, attempting to steal his Ford truck. Attached to the car was a $5,000 trailer with an $8,000 four-wheeler and a $5,000 lawn mower. When Biggs confronted Campbell, a fight ensued. During the fight, Campbell shoved Biggs, punched him, and shoved him again, causing him to fall to the ground. While Biggs was on the ground, Campbell got on top of him and pinned his arms to the ground. Biggs attempted to call 911, but Campbell stole his phone. Campbell proceeded to hotwire Biggs’ truck and drive off with the trailer and other property. Officers encountered Campbell while he was driving the stolen truck erratically down Eatons Creek Road. When officers activated their emergency lights and sirens, Campbell stopped on Old Hickory Boulevard. While officers approached the vehicle, Campbell left and ran toward a densely wooded area.

While Campbell was being escorted to patrol cars, he attempted to break free. Officers were able to gain control of him quickly. During a search of Campbell’s person, officers found a glass crack pipe, a Tennessee ID that did not belong to him, Biggs’ cell phone, and a black handgun magazine. The ID belonged to a woman named Lakendra Williams. Officers located a black 9mm Ruger pistol in the front driver’s seat of Biggs’ vehicle. The pistol was loaded and was identical to the magazine found on Campbell. The gun’s serial number was checked, and officers found it stolen from Clarksville, Tennessee.

He was captured in Atlanta Tuesday night by his Nashville-based bondswoman, Keeley Benoit. He attempted to flee as he exited a club in Atlanta and had to be tased by the bounty-hunting team.
