Peg Broadcasting News Tuesday October 7, 2014

A Rockwood man faces a felony charge after fleeing authorities over the weekend. On Sunday, Cumberland County Sheriff’s Deputy Tom Howard observed a van on Highway 70 East in the Westel Community illegally pass another vehicle. Deputy Howard noticed the driver and passenger exchanging seats. Deputy Howard pursued and the van pulled over, and then started moving again at which time the driver exited the van. The passenger then got behind the wheel and took off towards Roane County. Authorities in Roane County were notified and the chase ensued to Waldo Road where the van sideswiped a Roane County Patrol car and wrecked in a ditch. Authorities arrested 31 year old Jessie Jackson Henry of Rockwood and charged him with Reckless Endangerment, Violation of a No Passing Zone, Driving on a Revoked License, and Felony Evading Arrest. Bond was set at $46,000 and Henry faces an October 27th General Sessions Court date. The other vehicle occupant told authorities that his cousin “J.J.” told him to drive or he would crash the van. The male subject said when he slid behind the wheel, J.J. punched the gas and that’s when the man jumped out of the van.
