Spencer Grooms is being sought
Warrants have been issued for a Cocke County man who has had on-going issues with Newport and Cocke County authorities. Deputy James Cupp says he stopped a vehicle on Sunday that was being operated by Spencer Grooms, 29, Keener Road, Newport on the Cosby Highway. But Grooms refused to follow commands that he keep his hands where they could be seen. The driver was asked to step out of the vehicle but instead he "shut the driver side door and took off at a high rate of speed with both passengers in the vehicle," Deputy Cupp said. And the officer adds,"The driver of the vehicle(Spencer Grooms) hit me with his vehicle knocking me back while attempting to flee." Grooms was pursued to Mulberry Street in the auto that is registered to Brittany Reese. Officer Cupp says Grooms was operating the vehicle at a very high rate of speed, failing to stop at stop signs and going around other vehicles. The driver took several back roads, causing Officer Cupp to lose sight of the auto, and so he terminated the pursuit. Now Grooms is being sought on charges of aggravated assault, evading arrest, felony reckless endangerment, kidnapping, driving on a revoked license and disorderly conduct.
