Tennessee Highway Patrol trooper Bobby Johnson detailed the pursuit, stating, “When I pulled up behind him and turned my lights on he took off and refused to stop. He was all over the road the whole time. He turned off on Old Liberty Road and came to a stop. He opened his door. He was naked and covered in blood. He then shut his door and kept driving.”
Johnson added, “The Alexandria Police Department spiked him on Highway 70 as he was going through Alexandria. He kept traveling westbound into Wilson County. The THP spiked him in Watertown but he continued westbound. We finally were able to box him in and got him stopped on Highway 70 right before the Interstate at I-40 and took him in custody. He was then transported to Vanderbilt Hospital.”
Gilbert is reportedly being treated for his self-inflicted injury, and he remains in custody due to outstanding warrants for unknown offenses.
