A man has been placed on probation for a year after he led police on a chase through McMinnville.
The man, Carlos Placido Quezada, 25, entered guilty pleas before General Sessions Judge Bill Locke to charges of evading arrest and reckless driving. He was ordered on probation for an 11-month, 29-day period and must pay $50 plus court costs.
McMinnville police officer Stephen Daniels saw Quezada’s black G35 Infinity driving at a high rate of speed down Mullican Street, which is a residential neighborhood with a posted 30 mph speed zone.
“Officer Justin Shrum held his arm out the driver-side window, motioning him to pull over,” said Daniels, noting the suspect slowed for a moment on Caldwell Street before winding through side streets. “He refused to stop.”
Police followed the suspect’s vehicle as it weaved in and out of the residential neighborhoods before finally coming to a stop in a driveway on Yankee Street. He was arrested immediately with officers noting a smell of alcohol about his person. He avoided a drunk driving charge as police determined that while he had been drinking, he was not over the legal limit.
