NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A man was charged with forgery, evading arrest and violating the sex offender registry after he fled from police during a traffic stop in south Nashville Tuesday.
Oliver Buchanan Jr. allegedly forged stolen checks for Two Twenty Two Grill and Catering, a restaurant located inside the Country Music Hall of Fame, from September 2014 totaling $4,950.
Buchanan, 45, was pulled over Tuesday after failing to completely stop at a stop sign at the intersection of Linbar and Largo drives.
According to an affidavit, after the officer returned to his patrol car to verify the name and social security number Buchanan provided, Buchanan left the scene at a high rate of speed and turned into a nearby apartment complex.
Police were able to verify that Buchanan had several outstanding warrants and tracked him inside one of the apartments.
Additionally, Buchanan was reportedly in violation of his sex offender registration by not reporting for the December quarter of 2014 and failing to report his place of employment.
Buchanan has no connection to the Two Twenty Two Grill or the Country Music Hall of Fame.
He was booked in the Metro jail with a bond of $33,000.
