35-year-old Murray Hunter was booked on July 14th after being involved in a car chase that ended in the parking lot of Wagon Wheel on Fort Campbell Boulevard. Zachary Clark was the driver during the chase. Unknown pills were found in his pockets that were later identified as Percocets and Xanax. A search of the vehicle yielded 5.7 grams of fentanyl, 46.6 grams of marijuana, a loaded Ruger 5.7, a loaded Kel-Tec PMR, and a loaded Glock 36 in the backseat. Hunter was a passenger in the backseat in arm’s reach of the items found during the search. Hunter is a convicted felon.
Officers say 33-year-old James Anthony Jackson was driving on N. Riverside Drive just after 3 a.m. Sunday with no headlights on. As the officer attempted a traffic stop, the black sedan pulled over to indicate he was stopping, then suddenly turned and fled northbound at approximately 60 mph, too dangerous to pursue, so the pursuit was called off at Kraft Street. About two minutes later, the car was observed to be crashed into a tree at Kraft St. & Parham Dr., where a witness had pulled him from the vehicle. Inside the car was a Taurus handgun, an open container of alcohol, and marijuana, a “bag of colorful pills” (some of which tested positive for Fentanyl), and more marijuana was found on him at the hospital.
