Danny Hall pursuits and arrest
A Cocke County man who was involved in two pursuits involving Cocke County and Newport officers early Wednesday, now is in custody. Cocke County Deputy Aaron Loveday said he responded to a domestic dispute on Fairfield Drive. Nearby the officer spotted a black GMC Yukon matching the description of the auto driven by the suspect in the dispute. Deputy Loveday said he pulled beside the vehicle which was operated by Danny Hall, 33, Buffalo Road, Bybee, and told the driver to return to the Fairfield Drive home. Hall said he would have to turn around and as he did so, Hall instead " took off as fast as he could, spinning his tires," according to Officer Loveday. A witness reported that Hall drove through a nearby church parking lot and then through yards, eluding the officer under cover of darkness. At 3:45 am, Newport Patrol Officer William Garber spotted the Yukon on Clifton Heights, which drove through several yards without headlights, in an attempt to elude the officer. The SUV eventually entered North Highway 321, heading toward Parrottsville, driving in the wrong lane at a high rate of speed. The auto was eventually stopped near the Carpenter Road intersection. A passenger, Cassandra Smith, 31, told investigators she "begged the driver to let her out of the vehicle several times but he would not stop the vehicle," Officer Garber said. Smith said she feared for her life during the chase. The Newport officer charged Hall with Kidnapping, Evading Arrest, Reckless Driving and Driving on a Revoked License. Officer Loveday obtained warrants charging Hall with Fleeing to Evade by Motor Vehicle, Vandalism and Driving on a Revoked License.
