A man is facing charged after Metro police said he crashed a stolen SUV into a building belonging to the Tennessee Department of Corrections.
According to a Metro Police affidavit, the incident happened Thursday.
Police say William Todd, 31, was speeding in a stolen vehicle when he crashed into a fence along Centennial Boulevard.
The fence surrounds the old state penitentiary that is now used by TDOC.
Surveillance video showed the moments Todd drove up a ramp and through several cubicles, before slamming into a wall and a concrete pillar.
An officer and a K-9 officer chased Todd into the woods, trying to cuff the man who initially refused arrest.
This morning, he’s facing lots of charges — including failure to report an accident with injury/damage, robbery, burglary of a motor vehicle, theft of property over $10,000, vandalism over $10,000 and resisting arrest, evading arrest and leaving the scene of an accident. He’s being held at the Davidson Co. Jail on a $30,000.
