A Lenoir City man racked up 20 charges Dec. 29 after multiple police pursuits ended in his arrest.

Loudon County Sheriff’s Office Cpl. Zachary Frye saw a white Buick sedan speeding before he attempted a traffic stop. Cody Michael Chastain, 29, the driver, instead led a pursuit into Roane County.

Chastain wrecked into a tree before fleeing on foot. A passenger remained in the vehicle and told Frye he had asked Chastain to stop multiple times to let him out of the vehicle.

Deputies used a K9 to find Chastain, but the effort was unsuccessful.

Later in the day, Lenoir City Police Department received a call alerting officers to a stolen vehicle at a business. When officers arrived, Chastain evaded them in the vehicle. LCPD ended the pursuit after LCSO took over, LCSO Sgt. Det. Jerramie Bowen wrote in a report.

Bowen confirmed the truck Chastain was driving was stolen in Roane County. Chastain ran three stop signs before going airborne at the fourth stop sign and almost hitting several other vehicles. Bowen lost sight of Chastain at Kingston Street, according to a report.

Chastain fled on foot from the car at East 3rd Avenue and ran to Rock Springs Park, where he was apprehended in the woods.

On Dec. 15, a woman had parked her car in front of her mother’s apartment for a five-minute visit. Her Toyota Highlander had been stolen by Chastain, LCPD Officer Jonathan Yates wrote in a report.

On Dec. 24, LCSO Deputy Charlie Huskin was working security detail at a business and saw Chastain get into the Highlander and drive off. A short pursuit followed, but officers lost the vehicle before finding it abandoned in a neighborhood. An inventory of the car revealed 13 grams of methamphetamine and other paraphernalia believed to belong to Chastain, according to a report.

Chastain was charged with four counts of reckless endangerment, false imprisonment, two counts of theft of property, vandalism, five counts of evading arrest, possession of drug paraphernalia, manufacture, delivery, sale or possession of meth, two counts of reckless driving and three counts of driving on a revoked/suspended license and held without bond.

Lenoir City man rapes woman

A Lenoir City man was arrested Friday after admitting to raping a woman in her home.

LCPD Officer Ron DeLand was dispatched to a home on East 2nd Avenue after a woman called dispatch and told them she had been raped by her best friend’s boyfriend.

The woman told DeLand she and Thomas Andrew Ferguson III, 29, had been drinking. He told her he wanted to hug her and talk with her on the back porch. After talking outside, the woman went to her room. Ferguson followed her and sat on the bed and talked more.

Ferguson started making sexual advances toward the woman. She kept telling him, “no,” DeLand wrote in a report.

Ferguson stopped initially before forcing the woman’s pants down and raping her. Medical personnel took the woman to the emergency room.

DeLand approached Ferguson in the kitchen to confront him with what the woman reported. “Whatever she said happened,” Ferguson told DeLand. Ferguson admitted to forcing her to have sex with him and heard her say, “Stop and No,” DeLand wrote in a report. Ferguson told DeLand “his emotions got the better of him.”

Ferguson was charged with rape and released on $50,000 bond.
