A Coffee County man who allegedly beat his girlfriend and then led police on a high-speed chase faces multiple charges.The suspect, Keyvin Lanier Glass, 26, is charged with reckless endangerment, evading arrest, vandalism, and fourth-offense driving on a revoked license. He will face preliminary hearing before General Sessions Judge Bill Locke on July 18.His charges come after he allegedly struck his girlfriend several times in the head with his fists during an argument. The woman was sitting next to her 5-year-old daughter who was struck during the attack either by Glass’ fists or by her mother’s head being knocked into her face.Later in the day, after the assault, the victim said she demanded to be let out of her car after Glass began driving the vehicle recklessly.“I was attempting to unbuckle my daughter from the seatbelt when he sped away at a high rate of speed almost pulling my child out onto the roadway,” the victim said to the judicial commissioner in swearing out the warrant against her boyfriend.It was at that point, McMinnville Police officer Aaron Roberts fell in behind the suspect’s vehicle near the off-ramp on Highway 55.“He sped past two vehicles on a double yellow line at a high rate of speed,” Roberts recalled after trying to pull him over.
