Tracy City Man Arrested In Sevierville

Police pursuitA burglary occurred at Lee’s Pharmacy in Sevierville Monday afternoon that later resulted in a multiple-vehicle crash.
Suspect Robert F. Nunley, II, 43, of Tracy City, fled the scene in a black Land Rover that police had identified as a vehicle possibly leaving the scene after the burglary. Nunley led police on a chase in which the suspect “jumped curbs” and attempted to drive on a sidewalk before rear-ending a stopped car at a traffic light. The crash caused a chain reaction, damaging two other vehicles. The Land Rover and one police car were also damaged. Police discovered that the Land Rover had been reported stolen in Athens, TN in June.
Nunley was arrested at the scene and charged with aggravated assault, possession of burglary tools, evading arrest, reckless driving, theft of property, use of a stolen vehicle, and vandalism.
Three people suffered minor injuries from the accident and were taken to a nearby hospital.
Nunley was released after posting a $135,000 bond.
