Suspect Arrested For Disabling KFD Vehicle While Responding to Emergency Medical Call
On Sunday, February 3, 2019, at approximately 12:31 a.m., a Knoxville Fire Department fire truck was traveling on Church Avenue responding to an emergency medical call with lights and siren on when a male took an outdoor standing cigarette receptacle and threw it in front of the truck. The receptacle became lodged between the front axle and tie rod of the truck disabling the vehicle. The suspect then fled from the scene on foot.
The firefighters quickly gave chase catching the suspect at the Hilton Hotel. The suspect, Jeremy Wynn, was arrested and charged with two counts of Vandalism, Reckless Endangerment, and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia. Wynn is currently being held in the Roger D. Wilson Detention Facility. Another KFD fire truck was dispatched to respond to the emergency call.
