Metro Police spokesperson Don Aaron said officers responded to a call for a person holding someone up with a gun on County Hospital Road around 5:45 p.m. Tuesday.

When officers got to the scene, Bailey fled in a Buick Rendezvous at a high rate of speed, Aaron said. North Precinct officers engaged in a pursuit.

When Bailey led the pursuit to 18th Avenue North, Officer Gene McCollum became the lead pursuing vehicle. Police say Bailey eventually turned into a cul-de-sac off 18th Avenue.

According to Aaron, McCollum provided a lane for Bailey to exit the dead end. However, Bailey rammed into McCollum's patrol car as the officer was getting out of the car. McCollum then fired around four shots at Bailey. He did not hit him. McCollum suffered a wrist injury in the incident and is being treated at the hospital.

The chase continued out of North Nashville with Bailey eventually making his way onto I-65 South.

News4 captured video on the TDOT cameras that show Bailey driving erratically on the highway, forcing other drivers to swerve out of the way while officers pursued.

Officers reported that Bailey struck the concrete median several times. Bailey blew two tires on the car.

Bailey eventually pulled over on I-65 between Concord Road and Moores Lane, where he was taken into custody.

Police found two semi-automatic pistols in the car. Bailey told officers that he was involved in the drug trade and that there is heroin, Roxy, Xanax and a small quantity of meth inside the vehicle.

Bailey had two outstanding probation violation warrants at the time of his arrest.
