An hour-long police chase landed 24-year-old Brandon Boyd in jail early Friday morning after police documents say Boyd had threatened to kill the mother of his children.

According to Boyd's arrest affidavit, Boyd had called the mother of his children multiple times, threatening to shoot and kill her. It said he then showed up at her home and repeatedly tried to kick the door in late Thursday night.

When police arrived, Boyd reportedly got in his car and sped off leading officers on an hour-long chase through Nashville.

Metro police called out their helicopter to help keep track of Boyd's car, then officers threw down spike strips, but Boyd reportedly refused police commands.

According to documents, police broke Boyd's window with a baton and then used a taser to subdue Boyd, then taking him into custody.

Police arrested Boyd on multiple offenses, including domestic assault, vandalism, resisting arrest, evading arrest and driving on a revoked license. He is in jail on a $115,000 bond.

Police said he was also served with eight outstanding warrants, as well. A warrant from May details an account where Boyd allegedly beat the mother of his children repeatedly in the face and then followed her.

The woman said she already had a restraining order against Boyd.

Boyd's photo was not available. No additional details were known at this time.
