Police: Man attempted to flee on motorcycle

A Nashville man has been charged with felony resisting law enforcement after police say he tried to flee from them on a motorcycle March 20.

Brown County Sheriff’s Deputy Joe Jackson was patrolling on State Road 46 East near the Circle K gas station when he was notified by another deputy of a motorcycle with green accent lights passing cars unsafely and following vehicles too closely, according to Jackson’s probable cause affidavit.

Jackson reported seeing the motorcycle dart out between two cars and pass the lead car at 65 mph in a 50 mph zone.

The driver, Jadden Oden-Williams, 22, of Town Hill Road, continued onto Old State Road 46 as Jackson pursued him with his emergency lights on, the affidavit states.

Jackson reported seeing the motorcycle go up the hill by Clay Lick Road before he lost sight of it.

Deputy Josh Stargell then reported passing it while he was eastbound. Jackson said Williams must have pulled into a driveway and turned off his lights until Jackson went by, then turned back around to go back the way he came when he passed Stargell.

Sgt. Bill Southerland was parked at the Brown County highway garage to intercept the motorcycle.

Williams denied resisting the police and he said it must have been another motorcycle like his.

Williams was arrested. On March 23, he was charged with resisting law enforcement, a Level 6 felony; and speeding, a Class C infraction.
