Man accused of driving away from police during traffic stop

NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

A man is in jail after allegedly taking police on a chase and using a bizarre tactic to get away from officers.

Police pulled over Earl Waters near the intersection of Cleveland Street and Dickerson Pike just before 11 p.m. Monday.

According to police, Waters initially told officers he got robbed but later said the people who were riding in the car with him attacked him.

Moments later, police say Waters sped away. Officers followed him and were eventually able to stop him.

Police say they found marijuana when they searched Waters' vehicle.

Waters was booked into the Metro jail on evading arrest and drug charges.
