Officers say he sped off onto Clarksville pike at a high rate of speed, passing vehicles in a dangerous, illegal, and unsafe manner.

Police didn’t pursue the car because they said it wasn’t safe for the public.

They later found and detained Blackmon. Officers said he had about 7.5 grams of crack cocaine and digital scales.

Blackmon is charged with felony drug offense and evading arrest. His bond is $25,500.
