CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Three women were arrested after one allegedly tackled an officer in Clarksville as he was attempting to arrest her sister then fled police before finally being arrested.
A Clarksville officer was dispatched Saturday to Governors Square Mall to investigate a report of intimidation and shoplifting.
A store manager told the officer that three black females had gotten into a confrontation and cursed at her before throwing a dress and threatening to hit her.
An employee spotted the suspects walking toward the front entrance of the mall and pointed them out to the officer.
The officer confronted the women near their vehicle and attempted to arrest one, but her sister allegedly tackled the officer and a struggle ensued.
The third woman, driving a Dodge Charger, remained in the car. All three eventually escaped in the vehicle after injuring the officer and attempting to grab his Taser.
After a 7-mile pursuit, officers used spike strips near the intersection of 101st Airborne Division Parkway and Peachers Mill Road. The vehicle travelled less than 100 yards after all four tires were shredded.
Cierra Foxx, 28, her sister, 26-year-old Victoria Foxx, and Sherika Jones, 29, were all arrested and charged with numerous crimes.
The officer’s handcuffs were later found inside the vehicle.
