Authorities arrested a driver early this morning after leading them on a pursuit starting in Loudon County and continued into Roane and Anderson counties.
At approximately 12:01 am, Corporal Zac Frye observed a purple Chevrolet Camaro traveling at an extremely high-rate of speed on U.S. Highway 70 and noticed the vehicle swerving as well. Corporal Frye attempted to stop 45-year-old Mary Goddard of Lenoir City. She then led deputies through Loudon County on Highway 70 and into Roane and Anderson Counties. Goddard eventually found her way onto a gravel access road on Y-12 property. Corporal Zac Frye, Sergeant Matt Fagiana, and Roane County deputies, were able to perform a box-in maneuver on Goddard leading to her arrest without injury or incident.
Goddard was charged with felony evading arrest by motor vehicle, felony reckless endangerment, reckless driving, DUI (3rd offense), driving on a revoked license for DUI, and possession of schedule 4 and 3 drugs. Goddard’s Camaro was also seized for operating a vehicle while on a revoked license.
