A man who led deputies on a high-speed chase through a residential neighborhood while his terrified passenger was begging him to stop has been bound to the grand jury on a list of charges.The driver, Brent Edenburn, 21, waived his right to preliminary hearing before General Sessions Judge Bill Locke and was bound to the grand jury on charges of evading arrest, reckless endangerment, driving on a revoked license, speeding by doing 80 mph in a 55 mph zone, failure to maintain lane, running a stop sign and driving without insurance.Edenburn was arrested after deputy Jared Jacobs saw the suspect’s Volvo traveling at a high rate of speed on Beacon Drive in the Candlewood Subdivision.“I initiated a stop and he continued to speed up, driving at speeds in excess of 80 mph,” Jacobs said.The deputy was able to get the Volvo stopped on Nashville Highway after chasing him for a mile and a half. It was then the lawman learned why Edenburg was running.“He said his driver license was suspended,” said Jacobs, noting it was learned his license had been pulled for failing to pay a ticket.Jacobs also found a scared passenger in the Volvo when he made the traffic stop.“His passenger was in fear during the chase, stating she begged him to stop,” Jacobs said of the woman’s statement to him.
