Parton collects third criminal charge
Placeholder Image
A man already facing two criminal charges has picked up a third after he led officers on a chase while driving his box truck.The suspect, Tracey Glenn Parton, 45, faces charges of evading arrest, domestic assault, possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia, disorderly conduct and second-offense driving on a revoked license. He is also out of bond opportunities given his three separate arrests, meaning he will likely wait out his March 26 hearing behind bars at Warren County Jail.His most recent trouble comes after sheriff’s investigator Travis Thaxton tried to pull him over for driving on a revoked license. Thaxton saw Parton behind the wheel of a 2000 Freightliner box truck on Jones Lane and turned on his blue lights and siren.“Mr. Parton continued to evade arrest into Cannon County and was forced to stop about 16 minutes later,” Thaxton said.Thaxton’s suspicions were confirmed once he got the suspect stopped.
