18-year-old Alyssa Aldridge ignores officers, claims “she was not doing anything wrong”

18-year-old Alyssa Aldridge was caught evading arrest at Providence Boulevard and Peachers Mill Road on December 5th. A traffic stop was conducted because of the tint of Aldridge’s car, but she did not stop even after the officer activated both his lights and sirens. The officer continued to follow Aldridge to the said locations but discontinued the pursuit due to the department’s pursuit policy. The officer then determined where Aldridge resided, so he drove there as another means of apprehending her. When he arrived at the location, he noticed the same car he had attempted to conduct a traffic stop on earlier parked at the residence. When the officer contacted Aldridge, she first stated that she did not stop because she was not doing anything wrong, but Aldridge later said that she didn’t stop because she couldn’t find a good place to pull over. Aldridge’s window tint was tested and read to be 16%, lower than the legal limit of Tennessee, which is set at 35%. Aldridge was taken into custody and charged with evading arrest.
