NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — A woman is now jailed in Nashville on charges from an Endangered Child Alert where law enforcement had to chase down a U-Haul van.

It happened back in August of last year. An arrest affidavit states the Metro Nashville Police Department (MNPD) got into a pursuit with Brandy Burns as she was the suspect of a kidnapping of a two-month old who was the center of an Endangered Child Alert.

According to the report, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) advised MNPD that Burns was in a U-Haul van parked in the area of West Nashville. Officers found the U-Haul van at the U-Haul lot on Annex Avenue.

Police said Burns got into the drivers seat after they gave her commands in an attempt to stop her but she drove off. The report revealed she drove and sped recklessly and almost hit an officer on I-65.
