A convicted felon is back behind bars today after he allegedly pitched a half-pound brick of cocaine from his car and crashed into another vehicle as he ran from police in south Nashville.
Darryl Alderson, a 20-year-old who received a three-year probated sentence in March, allegedly took off when police attempted to make a traffic stop Monday night on Una Antioch Pike. Alderson’s Chevrolet Impala was traveling 46 mph in a 35 mph zone.
Police say Alderson accelerated toward Murfreesboro Pike and tossed a white bag from the driver’s window. He then struck another motorist’s vehicle (The second driver was not hurt.) at the intersection of Una Antioch Pike and Murfreesboro Pike. He stopped at Nashboro Boulevard and Flintlock Court where he was taken into custody.
Officers recovered the white bag, which allegedly contained the cocaine brick.
Alderson, of Vailview Drive, is charged with felony drug possession in a drug free zone (The cocaine was tossed within 1,000 feet of Mt. Zion Baptist Church.), tampering with evidence, evading arrest, leaving the scene of an accident and driving on a revoked license.
His bond on those charges is set at $80,000, and a probation violation charge is expected to be filed.
