Officers also charged White with assaulting an officer from an incident that happened in late June. According to his arrest affidavit, White was seen by detectives trying to sneak into a car in a parking lot. The detectives told him to get out of the car but say instead of listening to their commands, started driving off. According to the affidavit, one of the officers was hit in the arm, knocking his taser off his raid vest. Metro police say White nearly hit the detectives again as he tried to get out of the spot but they were able to get out of the way.

White also faces a few charges from an October 2018 chase on I-40 West. At the time, police say White led officers on a chase, reaching speeds of 105 miles per hour.
