The witness said during the chase the vehicle kept driving in circles and at one point, a vehicle that was hit impacted a person nearby. The reckless driver then ran onto the grass and got stuck.

A man pulled the driver out of the vehicle and started fighting with him, the witness said. Several school aides then helped pin the suspect down outside of the car.

Metro later identified the suspect as 24-year-old Clay Green and charged him with two counts of attempted murder and battery with a deadly weapon.
