U.S. marshals catch fugitive in south Nashville ????? Officers are searching the Regents Park neighborhood and areas between Una Antioch Pike and Mullens Road.!!!!!! You say he was caught then you say he was stopped and got away. Good lord get it correct and if Marshals stopped McCormick in his black GMC Yukon, just before noon Wednesday. McCormick allegedly put his vehicle in reverse and attempted to run over the officer before fleeing in the Yukon. LMAO send those Marshals back to the firing range and teach the others to drive. This is funny Keystone cops letting a short fat man get away.
