Suspect in Westmoreland officer assault given ultimatum

Evan Carroll

WESTMORELAND, Tenn. (WKRN) — “Turn yourself in to us by 7:30 am Monday… and we will do everything in our power to help you and to help get your life turned around.”

Westmoreland police posted a lengthy plea on its Facebook page Sunday night to Evan Carroll, the man suspected of assaulting an officer.

The department had issued an alert for Carroll on Thursday and said he was also wanted on charges of resisting arrest, evading arrest and shoplifting.

The wanted man was last been seen in the 5000 block of Austin Peay Highway where he was picked up in a maroon, four-door vehicle, police said.

In Sunday night’s Facebook plea, police said “you are too young, to be on the run and going through the things you are going through. If you do not turn yourself in by the time 7:30 am Monday morning, I will be calling and asking for the assistance of the US Marshals service to find you.”

Carroll did not turn himself in by the deadline, the department said.

Anyone with information on Carroll’s whereabouts should contact the Westmoreland Police Department at 615-644-2223.
