A LaFollette Police officer got a run for his money when he attempted a traffic stop last Wednesday.
Officer Steve Wallen knew Cleveland J. Shoupes, Jr., 33, of 225 Midway Circle, Jacksboro, was driving on a suspended license when he saw him traveling on Blue Drive, the report said.
Wallen activated the emergency lights and siren to conduct a traffic stop. Instead of pulling over, Shoupes allegedly began to accelerate in an attempt to flee, according to the complaint.
