Macon Men Chased Across Two Counties PDF Print E-mail

(Eddie West, Carthage Courier, contributed to this article)

On Thursday, September 4, two Macon County men were involved in a reckless high speed police chase that began in Smith County and ended in a field in neighboring Trousdale County.

According to Smith County Deputy Steven Ray’s narrative, he was dispatched to the Dixon Springs community shortly before 11:00 a.m. to look for two individuals in a green Tahoe, who were possibly involved in the theft of a trailer. Prior to this a suspicious vehicle report had been called in from the Beasley Bend area, matching the same description.

Deputy Ray encountered the vehicle at Rome Road and Dixon Springs Circle and he witnessed  the Tahoe drive through a stop sign. The deputy attempted to make a traffic stop on Young Branch Road but the driver failed to yield and he accelerated to speeds up to 80 miles per hour while driving in a reckless manner on the wrong side of the road. 

The deputy said that he followed the vehicle onto Toetown Road, then onto Scanty Branch Road North, into Trousdale County and onto Massey Hollow Lane, where the vehicle stopped on a steep hill in a field and the two male subjects fled. They were 30-year-old William Alexander Beasley and 38-year-old Duwayne Edward Perdue, both of Macon County.

Several officers with the Smith County as well as Trousdale County Sheriffs Departments responded to the call. A K-9 unit from Trousdale County was also dispatched to the area.

Lt. Detective Shannon Hunt made contact with William Beasley on Skelton Lane directly across the hill from the incident and transported him to the Smith County Jail, where he was charged with evading arrest, felony possession of drug paraphernalia, criminal trespassing, providing false report/information, criminal impersonation and introduction of contraband into a jail.

Methamphetamine was found on William Beasley, who is also wanted in Macon County, when he was booked into the Smith County Jail.

The vehice was registered to Duwayne Perdue, who wasn’t located but is charged with evading arrest, reckless driving, reckless endangerment, driving on suspended license and has been cited for traffic control devices, speeding and failure to maintain proper lane of travel.

The deputy found a syringe on the dash of the Tahoe, in front of the passenger seat where Beasley was sitting. William Beasley’s bond is set at $8,000.

As of press time, Duwayne Perdue, who is also wanted in Macon County, was still being sought. 

Prior to the pursuit, a Smith County sheriffs department officer was in the Beasley’s Bend area and he spoke with the two male subjects and obtained identification.

Chief Deputy Bryon Satterfield, of the Macon County Sheriffs Office, said on Monday morning, that they have active warrants on William Alexander Beasley and Duwayne Edward Perdue.
