Sanderlin/Toby pursuit and arrest
A Newport couple face a number of charges following a pursuit and crash in Bybee on Friday which left the car of a Newport Detective heavily damaged. The incident began when Stephanie Sneed reported the door to her residence on Filbert Street had been forced open. In addition, Newport Patrol Officer Mike Robey and Newport Detective Scott Lamb investigated reports of the theft of a wallet belonging to David Parton. Police said evidence developed William Russell Sanderlin, 26, Greystone Way, and Tiffany Toby, 28, Filbert Street, Newport, as suspects. Sanderlin who was wanted on a federal Probation violation was spotted in Bybee with Toby as a passenger in his Jeep. US Marshals, Cocke County deputies and Newport authorities including Detective Jason Ramsey attempted to stop Sanderlin who fled on Buffalo Road. Newport Chief of Police Maurice Shults says Sanderlin was driving a Jeep which bore a license plate which had been reported stolen in the city. The Chief says Sanderlin struck a Newport police cruiser twice in a lawn on Buffalo Road and then fled onto Highway 160. When Detective Ramsey pulled up beside the fleeing Sanderlin, "he turned left into Detective Ramsey's police car and the Jeep overturned into a ditch," the chief said. Officer Ramsey's vehicle sustained heavy damage and Ms. Toby sustained minor scratches from the broken glass. Sanderlin is charged with Aggravated Assault, Aggravated Burglary, Theft of Property and Driving on a Revoked License as well as the federal Probation Violation. Toby is charged with Aggravated Burglary and Criminal Conspiracy in the Sneed theft
