Roller to face grand jury for high-speed run from law

A Woodbury man has been bound to the grand jury on charges of leading lawmen on a high-speed chase and then staying at large for over a month after he fled his wrecked vehicle on foot.
The suspect, Jamie Roller, 35, waived his right to a preliminary hearing before General Sessions Judge Larry Ross last week and was bound over to the grand jury on charges of reckless endangerment, evading arrest, resisting arrest, and driving on a suspended license.
Roller is charged with fleeing from deputies early last month in a 1995 Chevy Blazer. Deputy Billy Joe Crouch said he tried to pull over the vehicle because its license tag was covered in mud and was unreadable, plus the back window and right rear side window were broken.
Crouch said when he tried to stop the vehicle, the driver accelerated and turned onto West Green Hill Road from Nashville Highway. The SUV then turned onto Cherry Springs Road and ran through a ditch and continued through a muddy field.
“The truck became stuck in the mud and stopped and then all four doors opened and four people got out,” Crouch recalled. “I ran across the field toward the vehicle on foot.”
While Roller was able to get away at the scene, those caught by deputies trying to hide in a nearby wooded area identified Roller as the driver, prompting the charges against him.
