(RUTHERFORD COUNTY, TENN) Citations were issued to drivers on 242 driving offenses during the second “Operation Fall Brakes” enforcement and education event last Wednesday, November 9, 2022. During the event, Tennessee Highway Patrol troopers, Murfreesboro Police officers and Rutherford County Sheriff’s deputies saturated Interstate 24 and Veterans Parkway to stop aggressive driving.

Sheriff’s Sgt. Sean Vinson said the enforcement was affected by a pursuit from Wilson County into Rutherford County. Deputies used spike strips to stop the vehicle. Two juveniles were turned over to Mt. Juliet Police after the vehicle was stopped.


The TN Highway Patrol's helicopter tracked another driver who fled from a trooper and guided deputies to an Eagleville business where the individual was turned over to THP for charges.

During the special operation, 55-drivers were cited for speeding and 34-drivers were cited for using their cell phones while driving. Reports from the Rutherford County Sheriff's Office indicate the next enforcement and education event will be Dec. 7.
