A man who led officers on a high-speed chase that ended in a crash on Nashville Highway at Crisp Springs Road has been bound to the grand jury.
The man, Brandon Boling, waived his right to preliminary hearing and was bound to the grand jury on charges of vehicular assault, reckless endangerment with a weapon, evading arrest, burglary, theft, driving on a suspended license and possession of drug paraphernalia. His passenger, Jack Howard, also waived his right to preliminary hearing and was bound on charges of burglary, theft and possession of drug paraphernalia.
They were charged after Boling crashed his vehicle into an oncoming car in front of the old Red Dog on Nashville Highway. The side-swipe crash left the other driver with minor injuries and a heavily damaged car.
Boling was fleeing from deputies who were trying to stop on him to talk to him about his involvement in a burglary. The suspects tried to run away from the wreckage of the vehicle which came to rest in a open field after slamming through a fence but were caught by lawmen moments later. Investigators reported finding items taken in a recent burglary inside Boling’s wrecked vehicle. He was also wanted for violation of parole.
