21-year-old Fort Campbell Soldier Zachary Jeffrey Braley is charged with drag racing and speeding after a THP Trooper observed him driving one of four vehicles traveling together and approaching him at a high rate of speed, eventually reaching 91 mph in a 55 mph zone on Hwy 374 between Peachers Mill Road and Whitfield Road. Trooper Cadena stopped Braley, who was driving the lead vehicle, at 1 a.m. and placed him into custody.

THP Trooper Cadena initiated a traffic stop in front of Gate 1 and placed Fair under arrest for reckless driving. He arranged for a friend to pick up the Mustang and he was transported to booking.
