Thats just excellent. Of all the places you could possibly engage in the process of making meth, I would think across from the dispatch center is not the best plan. But thats just me.

This was posted on a local news source on July 5, 2013:

A Tennessee couple was jailed Thursday after a pursuit on Route 77 that included both jumping from the vehicle while it was moving, Wyoming County sheriff’s investigators said.

Jessica Ring, 28, of 1605 Greens Circle in Goodlettsville, Tenn. was northbound in a 2000 Chevy Blazer when she was allegedly observed traveling off the east shoulder by Investigator Aaron Anderson.

Ring refused to stop and fled northbound at speeds reaching 75 mph, deputies said. She then allegedly traveled into an overgrown field and continued northbound.

Ring and passenger Ricky Leach Jr., 33, of the same address, jumped from the vehicle while it was moving, deputies said. They both allegedly fled into a creek bed and into a culvert which ran under the highway.

Both were then taken into custody by Anderson and state police Trooper Eric Lunser without further incident. A check of the vehicle allegedly revealed it had been stolen June 28 in Tennessee.

Ring and Leach were each charged with fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property and third-degree unlawful fleeing a police officer. Ring was additionally charged with DWAI, reckless driving, unlicensed operation, failure to obey a police officer, moving from lane unsafely and speeding.

Both were committed to Wyoming County Jail in lieu of $15,000 bail. They are to appear in Town Court at a later date. Deputy Katie George assisted the arrest.
