Two women were arrested Nov. 10 in Lenoir City after an attempted shoplifting led to a high-speed chase.

Lenoir City Police Officer Andrew Lee responded to a theft at a business on U.S. Highway 321. An employee said Mikaylah Alyssa Grigsby, 20, Murfreesboro, and Lacey Jade Sides-Cook, 24, Nashville, were attempting to steal items when he and a fellow employee asked the women to leave.

Lee saw Grigsby enter the business again and she was detained for failing to comply with demands not to enter the store and “due to her belligerence,” Lee wrote in a report.

The employees told Lee the women became aggressive when they were caught putting items in their purses. They then began throwing the items at the employees and refused to leave.

Employees told Lee and other officers that Sides-Cook fled the scene in a white Nissan Rogue. While speaking with Lee, the employees saw Sides-Cook at a nearby business. Officers left to find her.

Sides-Cook ignored the commands of Officer Carlos Espinoza to stop the vehicle and quickly left the gas station. Espinoza followed with his emergency lights engaged. Sides-Cook didn’t pull over and instead drove on Interstate 75 South, where she swerved in and out of traffic at speeds up to 110 miles per hour. Near mile marker 78, Sides-Cook hit a guardrail and finally stopped at the Exit 76 ramp, according to a report.

An inventory of the vehicle revealed two Xanax pills and two marijuana bongs.

Officers determined Grigsby was impaired. She performed poorly on field sobriety tests. Employees did not want to pursue charges for theft, assault or criminal trespass.

Grigsby was charged with public intoxication and released on $1,000 bond.

Sides-Cook was charged with reckless endangerment, resisting arrest, evading arrest, simple possession/casual exchange, possession of drug paraphernalia and reckless driving and held on $28,000 bond.

North Carolina man caught with teen

A Hickory, N.C., man was arrested for contributing to the delinquency of a minor after being caught at Rock Springs Park after hours.

At 1:32 a.m. Sunday, Lenoir City Police Officer Ron DeLand saw a suspicious car parked with the engine running at Rock Springs Park. He spoke with the driver, Fredi Alamanza-Lara, 20, and a female passenger. He told the two the park closed at 11 p.m., and there had been vandalism there recently, DeLand wrote in a report.

After checking Alamanza-Lara’s license, DeLand learned it was revoked out of North Carolina.

The passenger told DeLand she was 18 years old but couldn’t provide proof of her identification. DeLand then learned she was 16 years old. She said she lied because “she was scared,” DeLand wrote in a report.

She told DeLand she had been talking to Alamanza-Lara through social media and met him at the park to talk. She told her parents she was staying at her grandfather’s.

The girl was charged with criminal impersonation and curfew violation.

Alamanza-Lara was charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor and driving on a revoked/suspended license and released on $4,000 bond.
