A man who allegedly tried to elude a Tennessee Highway Patrol trooper late Wednesday afternoon after an attempted traffic stop was charged with driving under the influence-2nd offense, reckless endangerment and a felony count of evading arrest.
Bradley Jay Foshie, 44, of 1275 Albany Road, is held on no bond pending a first scheduled appearance Friday in General Sessions Court.
Trooper Joseph Taylor attempted to pull over a Toyota Rav4 sport utility vehicle in the area of U.S. 11E and Asheville Highway about 6:25 p.m. Wednesday for driving without headlights.
“(He) ignored both my lights and sirens and sped out of a parking lot,” continuing northbound on Asheville Highway, the report said.
Foshie allegedly drove “in a reckless manner until his vehicle ran out of gas.”
Foshie allegedly drove into the oncoming traffic lane several times and passed another vehicle on a double yellow line, the report said.
He “could have caused serious injury to all vehicles on the roadway,” the report said.
Foshie told troopers that he drank two 25-ounce beers about one hour before the attempted traffic stop.
He was not able to complete field sobriety tests as instructed, the report said.
