NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A suspect was taken into custody after he allegedly tried to hit two officers with his car during a police pursuit in south Nashville. 

Around 2 a.m. Monday, a vehicle being driven by Mikhail Georges was spotted traveling at a high speed on Interstate 24, near Haywood Lane. An officer tried to get Georges to stop, but he allegedly continued to drive.
