Teen Charged with Assault and Child Endangerment

A 16-year-old has been charged with assault and child endangerment following a confrontation with first responders.

A 16-year-old female has been charged in Juvenile Court with three counts of aggravated assault against first responders, felony evading, and aggravated child endangerment. The charges follow an incident early Monday morning involving an argument with the father of their 2-month-old baby, during which he alleged that she was attempting to kidnap their child.

Officers responded to an address on Linbar Drive shortly after 7 a.m. and found the teen driving a Honda Civic with the baby in the backseat. When officers attempted to discuss the situation with her, she refused to comply and drove to Wallace Road. At this location, three responding officers tried to approach her again, but she aggressively backed her car into a police vehicle and then drove off. A fourth officer activated his emergency equipment, but she did not stop. The officer then turned off his emergency equipment and followed from a safe distance to avoid further endangering the child.

The teen continued driving into Rutherford County and finally stopped at a traffic light on Waldron Road. With the assistance of a LaVergne officer, she was taken into custody without further incident. The 2-month-old is now with family members.
