A Woodbury man is facing multiple charges following an incident which took place on Feb. 4.

Donald Tracy Hollis, 223 Hayes St., has been charged with DUI 8th Offense, Driving While License Revoked 14th Offense, Leaving The Scene Of A Property Damage Accident, Reckless Endangerment, Felony Evading Arrest By A Motor Vehicle and Felony Driving A Vehicle As A Habitual Motor Vehicle Offender.

According to five arrest warrants obtained by Woodbury Assistant Police Chief Kevin Mooneyham, Hollis allegedly struck two mailboxes while driving on Hayes St. and left the scene.

His vehicle was spotted on W. Lester St. with a flat tire. When Assistant Chief Mooneyham activated his emergency equipment to get Hollis to stop, he refused and sped up. He was chased to Locke Creek Rd. before he spun out of control and was stopped.

Cannon County Sheriff’s Deputy Travis Turney stated in one arrest warrant that he responded to a mutual aid request from the Woodbury Police Department due to a vehicle pursuit. He was advised by Assistant Chief Mooneyham to block John Bragg Hwy. or Hollis Creek Rd. due to the pursuit.

Deputy Turney blocked the intersection at Hollis Creek when the Hollis’ vehicle was rapidly approaching him and his patrol unit. Hollis did not stop after being commanded to do so at gunpoint and attempt to ram Deputy Turney’s vehicle.

For safety concerns, Hollis was not subjected to field sobriety tests. A mandatory blood test was done due to his prior DUI convictions.

A total bond of $27,000 was set for Hollis. His initial court date is March 13.

8TH DUI & 14TH ON REVOKED R U KIDDING ME? Are we waiting until he kills an innocent citizen to do something to this loser, such that he gets the message? OK, I get that we need to support him if we lock him up permanent. Put an ankle bracelet on him, which he's got to pay the county to have, and don't let him leave the house for a few years. Maybe it'll sink in then. Wow, I thought our Justice system was in place to serve and protect. Please all, warn the drivers in YOUR family, to always keep your head on a swivel.

No doubt the prior offenses occurred over a period of years, if not decades. I'm relatively certain the accused did do jail time for some of the priors. The justice system must abide by the laws established by the legislative system. DUI and DORL are misdemeanor offenses, for which the maximum penalty is 11 months, 29 days. To their credit state lawmakers have taken steps to strengthen the penalties for those offenses in recent years. More action may be needed.
