NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A man faces several charges after police say he led officers on a chase in Nashville, nearly hit a patrol car and was found with cocaine.
According to an arrest affidavit, the incident occurred on Monday after police saw Trey Dennis, 22, driving on Garfield Street near Rosa L Parks Boulevard.
