In a follow-up to a story we brought you yesterday, a joint drug operation between Manchester Police Department and the Coffee County Sheriff’s Department took place Wednesday afternoon. Manchester Police Department Assistant Chief Adam Floied told WMSR News the drug operation involved two suspects. When police began to surround the suspect’s Chevrolet SUV in a business parking lot, the driver then allegedly put the car in reverse, jumping curbs and entering Highway 55 toward Tullahoma. A high-speed pursuit ended when the driver Corerius Temon Trammell started to drive into oncoming traffic and then collided with a state trooper’s vehicle from the rear. According to Floied, after hitting the trooper’s vehicle, Trammell began to back up toward an investigator and the state patrolman and a sheriff’s investigator opened fire. The suspect then backed through the median and, with a flat tire, came to rest in the westbound lanes near Rose Hill Memorial Gardens. The two suspects were arrested and taken to the Coffee County Jail.
Trammell of Chattanooga, TN was charged with Reckless Endangerment, Resist, Stop, Frisk, Halt, Search and Mfg/Del/Sell of a controlled substance. Trammell’s Bond was set at $265,000.
