Meth Discovered After Driver Flees Traffic Stop

Suspects from Cookeville and Sparta are facing criminal charges today after a highway patrol trooper allegedly found a meth lab in their vehicle. Authorities say 41-year-old Tracy Darren Grissom of Cookeville and 32-year-old Amy Carmella England of Sparta were charged after Grissom allegedly fled from a traffic stop on Monday and ended up wrecking his car. The THP says the chase began on Hilham Road when an officer clocked Grissom's vehicle doing 60 miles an hour in a 45 mile zone. The trooper says Grissom fled on foot after crashing his vehicle into a tree on Paran Road.  England was a passenger in the vehicle, and authorities claim they found a mobile meth lab in the car as well.  They say Grissom was later captured and both have been charged with promoting the manufacture of meth.
