Man Charged With DUI After Chase, Being Tased

Jonathan R. Norton, 29, of 75 Katherine Lane, was charged with driving under the influence-second offense, resisting arrest and speeding about 2:45 a.m. Sunday following a vehicle pursuit that ended in a crash, Greeneville police Officer Eddie Key said in a report.

Sheriff's deputies were also involved in the arrest. Norton was seen driving 47 mph in a 30 mph zone outbound on Mt. Bethel Road, Deputy Roy Milton said in a report.

The deputy turned around to stop Norton for speeding. Norton turned onto East Barton Ridge Road and deputies were not able to catch up to the Jeep he was driving, the report said.

"When I topped the hill before East Church Street, he was wrecking into a power pole. When I arrived on the scene of the crash, I told [Norton] he was under arrest, and he ran on foot away from me down the hill," the report said.

After a brief foot pursuit, "I caught up to him beside a residence at the corner of East Church Street and East Barton Ridge [Road]. He was still trying to get away," the report said.

Deputies issued several commands for Norton "to turn around and put his hands behind his back, and he would not, and I tased him," the report said.

Norton was taken into custody by deputies and turned over to Greeneville police.

The crash was in the 500 block of East Barton Ridge Road, Key said in his report.

A records check shows that Norton had a previous DUI in December 2010.

He was held on no bond pending a first scheduled General Sessions Court appearance today.
