Three police chases in two days

Thursday, October 13, 2005

Two more police chases occurred Tuesday night in Shelbyville, increasing the count to three in two days.

All three chases originated in the area near the North Main Street-Colloredo Boulevard intersection, where several other vehicles have been stopped without incident in the past few days.

* A police cruiser was struck and the driver apprehended after a foot chase following a pursuit which started after a vehicle with a taillight out failed to stop.

Fox said he attempted to stop the car driven by Steven Louis Streeter, 20, of Shelbyville, on North Main Street about 8:30 p.m.

Streeter "refused to stop," Fox said, and "turned left onto Austin Avenue, left onto Springdale Avenue, right back onto North Main Street.

"He drove south on North Main, turned left into the Kroger parking lot, out the back entrance onto Castle Street onto Fairfield Pike, then drove onto Gowan Drive, then Blue Ribbon Parkway."

Streeter allegedly struck the rear quarter panel of Lt. Trey Clanton's police car at the intersection of Blue Ribbon Parkway and Clara Drive, then fled on foot.

Clanton, Fox and Officer Josh Tolar captured Streeter in a creek bed behind Clara Drive moments later.

Charges of aggravated assault, felony evading in a vehicle, resisting arrest, reckless endangerment (two counts), reckless driving and driving without a license were filed against Streeter, who is being held at Bedford County Jail on $28,750 bond. Streeter's address was listed as Morton Street in the jail intake listing and a Barksdale Lane trailer park on the arrest report.

Two passengers in the car did not resist officers, Fox said.

Jonathan Miller, 20, was charged with underage consumption and released on $1,000 bond. His address is listed as Gregory Mill Road on the police report and Peacock Lane in the jail intake listing.

A 16-year-old boy was taken to police headquarters and released to his parents. No charges were indicated.

* The driver was able to run away after the first chase about 6:50 p.m., but a passenger was captured.

Officer Tim Fox began the chase after seeing an SUV allegedly running a stop sign at the intersection of Sevier and Noblitt streets.

"The driver refused to stop and made a right turn onto Elm Street, then another right turn onto Morton Street," Fox said. "He then crossed Colloredo Boulevard onto Morton and ran off the roadway as he turned right onto Quarry Street.

"I ordered the passenger to the ground."

The passenger, who was not charged and is the SUV's owner, told Fox he knew the driver only by a nickname.

Fox described the driver, last seen running toward Bridlewood Drive, as a black man approximately 6 feet tall, with medium build, and wearing a blue T-shirt and blue jeans.
