NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — A judge issued a gag order in the case of the deadly crash that killed Metro Nashville Police Officer John Anderson.

Juvenile Court Magistrate Michael O’Neil issued the order, barring legal teams on both sides of the case from releasing any more evidence to the public.

Just three days ago, the attorney for Jayona Brown, the teen accused of causing the crash, released information to us that he says shows Officer Anderson was traveling much faster than police protocol allows.

He also released surveillance video of the incident.

The order does not block media outlets from reporting on this case. We'll continue to bring you any new developments.
