ROGERSVILLE — A Rogersville man who led police on a high speed chase across the western half of Hawkins County Thursday night was charged with multiple felonies after being stopped in Bean Station with a "pit maneuver."

Rogersville Police Department Officer George Henry said he was on Hasson Street shortly before 8 p.m. Thursday at the intersection of Highway 11-W when he observed a black older model Mercedes pass by westbound at a high rate of speed.

Henry pursued the Mercedes, and said he paced behind the vehicle at 85 to 90 mph. When the Mercedes turned left onto Arrowhead Drive Henry activated his lights and siren in an attempt to stop the vehicle, but it wouldn’t stop. It was later discovered the alleged driver was Joe Perry Reed, 33, 127 Marble Hall Road, Rogersville.

The pursuit circled the Morgan Estates subdivision with Reed turning back into the westbound lane of 11-W from Morgan Drive. Reed had three occupants in the vehicle, who according to their police statements, were unwilling passengers in this pursuit.

At one point during the pursuit one of the passengers downshifted the Mercedes transmission, which caused the vehicle to decelerate and the tires to smoke. Henry pulled ahead of Reed, and as Reed tried to pass him back Reed allegedly rammed the side of Henry’s patrol car.

Eventually the chase crossed into Bean Station where Grainger County officers were waiting to join the pursuit. Grainger County officers stopped Reed near the Bean Station IGA using a "pit maneuver" which involves tapping a chase vehicle’s rear quarter panel to spin it out.

Reed was driving without a license and had allegedly been consuming alcohol. The Tennessee Highway Patrol, which made the arrest, did a blood draw on Reed.

Reed was lodged in the Grainger County Jail on charges there, and will also faces charges from the RPD including three counts of felony reckless endangerment, felony evading arrest and aggravated assault.

I know who Joe Reed is. He is good for nothin who should have been in jail when this happend. He was out on bond for 3 felony charges. He had violated the terms of his bond over two months prior to the car chase incident. But for some reason he was not picked up for it. He should be put in prison before he finally gets someone[s] hurt seriously or killed.

In response to Dont Worry; He does only have one good eye. But the rest of what you said is not true. Dont blame the cops for it. He risked the lives of many people and if they beat him he deserved it and more. He didnt look like he had any injuries when he was brought back to Rogersville to be arraigned on other charges. Only thing the cops done wrong was not having him in jail before the chase happened.

He did appear in court in Rogersville and turned around and LOOKED at family members present. All that about broken jaw and 24 hour nursing is bull s***. He has already been in prison once over assaulting and severely injurin a cop. As for Mr. Marecic he once boasted that he had people walking the street who should be in prison. The family did somehow come up with the attorneys fee.

Again people are telling lies. The RPD only started the pursuit when Mr. Reed was driving his black Mercedes at 80 mph past Quality Inn. If he was so poor how could he be driving a Mercedes? He risked the lives of many people. The cops didnt beat him. When he was finally stopped by the spikes he got out of the car and ran into a fence. That is how he sustained his injuries. Whoever is taking up for him must be a Reed or a Russell.
