LAFOLLETTE, TN (WLAF) – A driver clocked at driving 112 miles per hour through La Follette was arrested on Tuesday just after midnight. HERE is the story. Later that Tuesday night, Adam Guinn of Jacksboro was observed traveling at 107 MPH according to a report from the La Follette Police Department.

Detective-Sergeant Danielle Gilbert with LPD was on routine patrol when she was stopped at the South Avenue traffic light and Jacksboro Pike, and as she pulled out from the green light, a black Lexus passed her, Jacksboro bound, at a high rate of speed. When the officer activated lights and siren, Guinn sped up. The detective-sergeant pursued Guinn for two and a half miles during which time he passed several cars and changed lanes multiple times according to the LPD report. Guinn finally stopped at the Peoples Bank Mall Branch at 2300 Jacksboro Pike.

Guinn followed Gilbert’s order and turned off the car appearing confused and smelling of an alcoholic beverage. When Guinn stepped out of his black sedan, he appeared to be unsteady on his feet, his speech was slurred and his eyes looked to be blood shot based on the report. The end result was that he performed poorly on all field sobriety tests.

A loaded Glock 43 and an additional loaded magazine were found in Guinn’s car along with a bag labelled as marijuana. Guinn explained the marijuana was prescribed from a Knoxville hospital.

Guinn is free on a $25,000 bond and is scheduled to be in court on May 24. Among his numerous charges is DUI (driving under the influence), speeding 107 MPH in a 40 MPH zone and possession of a firearm while intoxicated. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 05/19/2022-6AM)
