A Franklin Police Officer investigating a theft was nearly struck last night by a fleeing suspect’s vehicle. It happened at 9:00 pm Tuesday at the CoolSprings Galleria. Officers approached the suspect, later identified as 24-year-old Tanesha Shannon, who disobeyed officers’ commands to exit her car. While fleeing at a high rate of speed, Shannon swerved directly toward a Franklin Police Officer, on foot, who was ordering her to stop. Shannon also evaded Brentwood Police who attempted to stop her a short time later on I-65.
Officers identified Shannon as the suspect after finding the vehicle she was driving parked on University Court in Nashville. Franklin Police arrested Shannon at her 12th Avenue residence a short time later.
Shannon, charged with Aggravated Assault of a Police Officer, Felony Evading, and Driving without a License, is back on the street after posting a $20,500 bond. She is due in court 01/17/2016 at 1:00pm.
Additional charges in this case are expected.
I promise I won’t respond to every letter… But this just infuriates me!!! There’s NO amount of money that should put her back on the street!! No amount of money. My husband is a police officer as well. This kind of thing just grieves me. And I have no need to be “rubbing shoulders” with animals like this at the mall. Okay, I’m done.

I agree absolutely! Why are these bails set so low? And where are these folks getting even that 10% bail money?
It’s true. These men & women in uniform dodge bullets, cars, needles, knives, & human spit each day to protect our family’s lives & when such crimes do not carry the penalty they should it disgraces us all. Attacking an officer of the law should carry a penalty of NO BAIL, period. Time to get these ground raising politicians on board that we want our men & women in blue protected.
