    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Rutherford / Davidson County I-24 West High Speed Chase on 8/25 - 8/26

I saw about ten Rutherford County Sheriff's Deputies chasing a vehicle down I-24 West in Rutherford County tonight around 12:15 a.m. or so. I immediately pulled up my scanner app on my phone.

Speeds reached 100 MPH. Metro had spikes set up at Harding Rd., but the car exited at Bell Rd before it got there. Metro said they would not join the pursuit.

The suspect headed across Murfreesboro Pike and turned onto Anderson where he bailed the car. They asked Metro to bring in a canine unit. Last I heard, two Metro units were in route. Since then, I have not heard a thing. I picked up one transmission where the dispatcher said a specific channel was closed, so they must have switched when the foot pursuit began.

I don't know what the suspect did, but I did pick up that his plates did not match his vehicle.

Does anyone know the outcome of this or why they were chasing him?
