Roane County deputies responded yesterday to a physical domestic altercation taking place in a vehicle on Sugar Grove Road at Skyline Drive in Harriman. A witness told officers a female victim attempted to get out of the vehicle and was dragged several feet. The report states the driver, 28-year-old Jayson B. Turner, stepped out of the vehicle, and walked up to the witness to spit in her face. Turner and the victim then left the scene but Kingston police saw them traveling a short time later on I-40 and a chase ensued. Turner got onto Pine Ridge Road, ran a red light at Ruritan Road nearly colliding with another vehicle head-on. Turner stopped briefly on Foster Road where the victim got out then the chase resumed and later ended on Trenton Street. Turner was arrested on numerous charges including aggravated assault, assault, reckless driving, reckless endangerment and evading arrest.
