MURFREESBORO, Tenn. -

A Murfreesboro man faces charges after he allegedly assaulted his girlfriend, stole her vehicle and then led police on a chase Saturday.

According to police, the incident involving Landoren Trammer began when the 47-year-old locked his girlfriend, Tamera Pettitt, inside a closet of her home located on Breeze Drive.

Trammer allegedly injured Pettitt before he stole her truck and wallet.

Police were notified of the incident when Pettitt's 11-year-old son called 911.

A deputy quickly located Trammer driving on Memorial Boulevard near Compton Road.

During the pursuit, Trammer tossed a loaded handgun and Pettitt's wallet from the vehicle.  He also reported sideswiped a Jeep and rear-ended a second vehicle before fleeing the scene and striking a deputy's patrol car.

"He was just driving erratically," Deputy Derrick McCullough said.

Commander Jacob O'Gynn added, "Luckily no one was seriously injured in the apprehension."

Authorities have since recovered the loaded .357 revolver.

Trammer was arrested and charged with aggravated assault, three counts of aggravated assault with a motor vehicle, reckless endangerment, felony evading arrest and unlawful possession of a handgun.

He was also charged with leaving the scene of an injury accident and driving on a revoked driver's license.

Trammer was previously charged with domestic assault in 2011 and felony evading arrest in a motor vehicle in 2009, according to police records.
