Midway Man Charged With Evading Arrest

Originally published: 2013-12-31 10:31:00

A Midway man faces a felony evading arrest charge after he reportedly led police on a high-speed chase along Gravel Woods, McDonald and Sinking Springs roads.

The chase took place around 1:15 p.m. Monday, after Sgt. David Beverly joined Deputy Jimmy Morgan and Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency (TWRA) Officer Marvin Reeves.

Reeves and Morgan had responded to a call from a resident in the 600 block of Gravel Woods Road in which a neighbor said someone shot a deer on their property as they watched it from their back porch.

Beverly, Reeves and Morgan were in the driveway of the man accused when he allegedly drove slowly past his driveway, saw deputies and continued on to McDonald Road.

Beverly followed the man, 68-year-old Willard Ray Miser, of 170 Gravel Woods Road, Midway, and Miser began to speed up, according to the report.

"I reached speeds of 60 mph on Gravel Woods," Beverly said in his report.

He further stated that he saw Miser run the Stop sign and turn north onto McDonald Road.

"I could see that Mr. Miser was traveling at a high rate of speed, and I activated my blue lights and siren," Beverly said in his report. "I reached speeds of 80 mph on McDonald Road until he turned onto Sinking Springs Road.

"When I reached his bumper near the intersection, he began to slow down but continued for another four-tenths of a mile before stopping," Beverly said in his report.

Miser was charged with felony evading arrest.

He allegedly told Beverly that he frequently drives at those speeds and did not know Beverly was attempting to pull him over.

At the jail, Miser also allegedly told Beverly that, "If I really wanted to run from you, then you would have never caught me, because I know these roads around here."
