MT. JULIET, Tenn. (WKRN) — A driver reportedly slammed into a Mt. Juliet patrol car during a low-speed chase along the interstate into Donelson Sunday night.

The pursuit ended around 7:30 p.m. along Farley Place in Donelson, when police said the 24-year-old driver pulled into his driveway. He will be charged in Wilson County and in Nashville for impairment, reckless driving and striking a patrol vehicle.
The suspect’s name was not immediately released.
