Hattaway pursuit and arrest
A Cocke County man is being held on numerous charges stemming from a Saturday afternoon pursuit through Newport. Newport Captain Amy Gentry said she spotted James Hattaway, 27, Wright Road, Newport, driving on Woodlawn Avenue without a seatbelt. The officer attempted a traffic stop but Hattaway fled, traveling 60 to 70 miles per hour through a 30 mile zone, going through four stop signs, finally after a several mile chase, Hattaway hit the curb and went airborne, as a passenger attempted to jump from the car. The passengers said the driver was incoherent, smiling and with his tongue hanging out as he fled from police. When he finally stopped, Hattaway was taken into custody. His passengers, Jesse Ochoa, Brandon James and Jennifer Hurst said Hattaway would not allow them to leave the car during the chase. Captain Gentry said she was told that the subject had been selling methamphetamine prior to the pursuit. Hattaway now is charged with three counts each kidnapping and reckless endangerment, fleeing to evade by motor vehicle, DUI, driving on a revoked license, no seat belt, four counts running a stop sign, speeding, no insurance and a registration violation.
