NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF)  — A man was arrested on multiple charges in connection with a high-speed pursuit across two counties.

The incident began when authorities were working a crash on Luyben Hills Road in Kingston Springs. A pursuit ensued after they saw a Chevrolet Monte Carlo leave the Mid-Town Inn & Suites at a high rate of speed.

At the same time, dispatchers got a 911 call about an intoxicated man who allegedly assaulted his wife, mother-in-law and daughter before leaving the motel.

A deputy tried to stop the car on Interstate 40 but the driver continued into Davidson County, reaching speeds of 110 mph. The car was eventually stopped at an Exxon station on Charlotte Pike.

Michael Reynolds, age 33, was taken into custody and charged with aggravated domestic assault, interference with emergency calls, evading arrest and reckless driving.

Police say Reynolds took their cell phones to prevent them from calling 911. He was held without bond in the Cheatham County Jail.

His booking photo wasn’t immediately available.
