Downtown Pursuit At Low Speed Ends In Multiple Charges

A man who led Greeneville police officers on a low-speed pursuit Tuesday morning through the downtown area is charged with driving under the influence, aggravated assault and a variety of other offenses.

Daniel Trevor Gross, 19, a former Greeneville resident who gave deputies an address in Conway, Ark., allegedly struck a vehicle in front of the Greeneville-Greene County Public Library and continued driving without notifying authorities, Officer Jeff Sowers said in a report.

Police received several calls complaining about a man driving a Ford pickup truck erratically.

"He was spotted driving slow and erratic" at the intersection of College Street and Tusculum Boulevard, a report said.

Officers activated blue lights and sirens, but Gross allegedly ignored the police car behind him, the report said.

Gross continued driving "from what started at 20 miles per hour to 40 miles per hour," the report said.

His truck was boxed in by police cars at the intersection of Tusculum Boulevard and Austin Street after a pursuit of about 1.5 miles, the report said.


About 30 different bottles of prescription medicines were found inside the truck, the report said.

During the investigation after Gross' arrest, he was found to have allegedly stolen the truck and a .22 caliber handgun from a relative who lives in Greene County.

Gross allegedly entered a house in the 300 block of Linda Avenue and took the bottles of pills, which had belonged to a deceased tenant, a report said.

Gross allegedly resisted arrest, a report said.

"(He) refused to comply with officer commands and made an attempt to strike an officer with his vehicle," a report said. "(Gross) had to be physically removed from the vehicle."

As Gross was being taken out of the truck, "he continually depressed the gas pedal," the report said.

Gross was carrying Lyrica and Soma pills he did not have prescriptions for, and told officers he had taken four Soma pills before the incident.

"(He) had very sluggish speech which was slurred and difficult to understand," the report said.

Gross was also charged with breaking and entering, motor vehicle theft, larceny/theft from a building, a drug violation, a weapon law violation, possession of Schedule IV and V drugs, felony evading arrest, leaving the scene of an accident, theft over $500 and theft over $1,000.

Gross was taken to a local hospital because of his level of intoxication, police said.

An investigation continues.
