MT. JULIET, Tenn. - Police in Mt. Juliet have released dash cam video of a pursuit that led to a 25-year-old’s arrest.
The incident began around 4:17 p.m. Saturday when officers attempted to stop a shoplifter, later identified as 25-year-old Cedric Hayes, of Hermitage. Hayes allegedly had stolen clothing, which he had stuffed under the clothes he was wearing.
Officials said Hayes fled from the scene in a stolen vehicle, and a pursuit ensued.
Hayes blew out both driver-side tires when he drove over a raised median in his attempt to get away.
Authorities continued the pursuit onto Interstate 40 until the stolen vehicle became disabled just before reaching spike strips that had been deployed in the roadway.
Hayes then fled from the car on foot and jumped the center dividing wall, running across eastbound lanes of traffic and into the wood line.
Police said they were able to quickly capture him.
After investigating further, authorities found Hayes was in possession of a stolen handgun, marijuana, and pills, which were believed to be Xanax. They also found the stolen merchandise in the car.
Reports stated the car was stolen out of Nashville on November 19, and the handgun had been stolen in Nashville during a robbery on July 22.
Hayes left two adult females and three children behind at Walmart when he fled. He was the only person being charged in the incident.
Hayes was lodged in the Wilson County Jail. He was charged with the following:
