Nashville, Tennessee (WKRN) – Convicted serious offenders have faced several charges after saying they resisted arrest while armed with guns by the Metropolitan Police.
According to the arrest affidavit, police officers found Fred Scotchell walking on the Stewarts Ferry Pike near Interstate 40 last Saturday. The report states that police officers knew that Scotchel had an unresolved felony warrant for a probation breach. The officer tried to arrest him, but he ran away.
After they captured the 34-year-old boy, police said they resisted the arrest by pulling his arm violently when they tried to detain him. When an officer asked Scotchel if he had a gun, he reportedly said he had a gun in his jacket pocket.
He was arrested and police found a gun. There was one gun in the chamber and five in the magazine. Scotchel told police he bought the gun on the street but didn’t know it was stolen. He was booked in Metro Prison on Monday. His accusations include probation violations, resistance to arrest, possession of weapons as a felony, and avoidance of arrest.
Police said he had previously been convicted of six felony charges, including the assault of a police officer with a deadly weapon.
