A Georgia man led officers on a pursuit Sunday through Lenoir City and racked up a long list of charges in the process.

Loudon County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Cody Bengel responded to the property of an abandoned home on Hotchkiss Valley Road in reference to a suspicious person and car. The caller told deputies there was a green Toyota Camry with heavy front-end damage on the property.

When approaching the car, Bengel identified himself as a deputy and the man, Dionta Tyrell Arnold, 28, Conley, Ga., quickly got into the driver’s seat and sped away through the yard, causing damage along the way, Bengel wrote in a report.

Arnold led a pursuit from Hotchkiss Valley Road onto Highway 95 while speeding and running stop signs. Arnold continued onto Adesa Parkway, where Bengel noticed smoke coming from the Camry. Arnold continued to run red lights and speed recklessly. He then made a U-turn in an intersection before continuing to U.S. Highway 321.

Bengel unsuccessfully attempted to stop Arnold using pursuit intervention techniques, and Arnold continued toward Interstate 75. He drove down the embankment between the on-ramp and I-75, went airborne and landed on the roadway below, Bengel wrote in a report.

The Camry was disabled and deputies boxed in the vehicle on the shoulder of the interstate.

Arnold then fled on foot and later crossed both lanes of traffic. Bengel used his taser to take Arnold down in the median before taking him into custody.

As Arnold was being detained, Bengel noticed a pistol at his feet. He was searched again and placed in a patrol car.

The Camry came back stolen out of Georgia and Arnold’s license was previously suspended. He also had an active warrant out of Clayton County, Ga., for terroristic threats. Bengel reviewed Arnold’s 22 pages of criminal history, where law enforcement learned Arnold is a convicted felon.

A methamphetamine pipe was found in the vehicle cupholder, and Arnold told deputies he was smoking meth when they initially approached him at the house.

Arnold was charged with criminal trespassing, aggravated assault, three counts of reckless endangerment, theft of property, vandalism, two counts of resisting arrest, possession of a handgun while under the influence, possession of a firearm during a dangerous felony, possession of drug paraphernalia, convicted felon in possession of firearm, driving on a revoked/suspended license, reckless driving, driving under the influence, violation of implied consent, three counts of traffic control device, driving on roadways laned for traffic and speeding 21 mph over the limit and held without bond.

Lenoir City man arrested for child porn

After months of investigation and multiple reports from websites, a Lenoir City man was arrested for exploitation of a minor.

The first report came into Lenoir City Police Department Inv. Jason Smith on March 16 from the Knoxville Police Department. The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children forwarded the tip to KPD from Twitter, which had reported images of child pornography and erotica that had been uploaded Feb. 10 to the site by a user.

The user registered the account Feb. 9 and had a Lenoir City phone number. The number was found in the records management system to belong to Bobby Lynn Ryan, 39. Ryan also uploaded a photo of himself on the Twitter account, Smith wrote in a report.

Smith received four more tips March 24 from KPD. NCMEC received the tip from Google, which reported an email account attached to Ryan’s phone number uploaded child pornography.

On May 6, Smith received another tip from KPD. NCMEC forwarded the tip from DropBox from an account under the name, “Anonymous Anomaly,” that had uploaded three child pornography videos and had been accessed from the same IP address reported by Twitter.

On May 12, LCPD Lt. Jeremy Dishner stopped Ryan as he was driving a white Chevrolet truck on U.S. Highway 321. Ryan had a gun in the vehicle, which was reported stolen from Knox County on May 16, 2020.

Ryan was charged with theft of property and aggravated exploitation of a minor and released on $31,000 bond.
