(Mt. Juliet, TN) A car stolen from Murfreesboro ended-up crashing through the side of a home on Central Pike near Pleasant Grove Road in Mt. Juliet. The vehicle was being pursued by Mt. Juliet police. The driver is 47-year old Glen Adams of Old Hickory. He was is booked in the Wilson County Jail.
So what started this escapade?
It seems as if Mt. Juliet police attempted to make a traffic stop, but when the driver allegedly would not stop - they ran the tags through the department's system. That's when officers learned that the Toyota SUV was stolen and the pursuit re-started.
The driver eventually lost control of the vehicle and slammed into a home, which ironically is owned by a Wilson County Sheriff's deputy, but no one lives there at this time.
The suspect was extricated from the vehicle and transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Mt. Juliet Police charged Glen Adams with theft of property, driving under the influence (3rd offense), evading arrest, reckless endangerment, reckless driving, driving on a revoked drivers license (2nd offense), and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.
Reports show that Adams allegedly stole the Toyota Highlander SUV from a Murfreesboro Exxon gas station earlier that morning, where the vehicle was unlocked and running.
By the way, Glen Adams was wanted in both Wilson and Sumner counties for felony theft and illegal drug activity charges. His record showed felony convictions of voluntary manslaughter and numerous drug related offenses.
