At 5am on 03/02/2015, an officer clocked 28-year-old Michael Sewell of Nashville at 114MPH on I-65, moments before his Volkswagen Jetta went airborne and crashed. Sewell was heading south near mile marker 64, and actually accelerated after spotting the officer coming after him. During his attempted getaway, Sewell exited at Peytonsville Road where he lost control of his vehicle, going airborne before landing in the construction zone 500 yards off of the roadway.
In addition to his car, Sewell damaged a fence and curbing valued at more than $500 during his getaway attempt, landing him a Felony Vandalism charge. Sewell was also charged with Felony Evading, Speeding, Speeding in a Construction Zone, Reckless Driving, No Insurance, and Driving an Unregistered Vehicle. He is free on a $9,000 bond and due in court 03/12/2015 at 1:00pm.
Sewell’s driving record is extensive.
$9000 bond? REALLY, Judges! We need people like this off the streets.
This guy is the type to bail jump – so much history; a real bad boy living ground hog day over and over again. He’s going to end-up killing someone on the road sooner-or-later. We probably should have considered setting no bail until his court date because of his track record.
With a record like his it would surprise me if he ever showed up in court! We should have considered no bail until his court date. This is the kind of guy who will sooner-or-later kill someone on the road. Almost a no brainer…
