Police said a 24-year-old Chattanooga man led Catoosa County deputies on a chase, then fought with a Chattanooga Police officer near the Shallowford Road exit of I-75.

Travis Allen Brenner, of 3733 Premium Dr., was charged with aggravated assault on police, evading arrest, resisting arrest and theft of property.

In the incident Oct. 8, a city officer said he came up on a wreck at the Shallowford exit. He said he also saw two Catoosa vehicles, but no officers.

He said the driver of the wrecked vehicle ignored his commands, then tried to drive the disabled vehicle toward him. 

The officer said the man then jumped from the vehicle and ran toward the heavily-congested freeway. He said he caught up with him near the interstate and he got him under control after they wrestled on the ground.

Roy Exum: 2018 Ig Nobel Awards

The word ‘ignobel’ is rarely used because only a few among us know that it means "characterized by baseness, lowness, or meanness." About 30 years ago, a glorious group of great scholars took a literary hatchet to form the word into ‘ig nobel’ so it could be placed in the dictionary as a term that means “a satirical social criticism that identifies absurd research.” Think of ...
