HCSO Deputies Involved in Pursuit on Apison Pike


Hamilton County, TN – On the evening of April 19, 2024, a Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office Deputy attempted to make a traffic stop on a Dodge Ram truck on Apison Pike. The truck was observed making several improper lane changes and an improper turn.

As the deputy was following and observing the vehicle it suddenly began to accelerate and pass cars in an evasive manner and a pursuit was initiated. The suspect vehicle would then travel down Old Lee Highway onto Ardmore Drive when it began circling around the apartment complex until it reached 4644 Ardmore Drive at which time the driver exited the vehicle without putting it into park.

The deputy began to chase the male suspect as the truck rolled driverless into a parked vehicle. The suspect entered apartment 206 and exited out a rear window where he was apprehended near the apartment pool complex by deputies.

• Signal for Turn
