21-year-Tyler Cobb is charged with aggravated reckless driving and felony evading arrest after he drove a UHaul truck to a car meet/sideshow Friday night (video below).

He was charged with additional offenses in Rutherford County.
This arrest was part of a coordinated street racer enforcement effort by MNPD Traffic officers, Violent Crimes Division, South Precinct Officers, and THP Troopers, along with multiple aircraft. A number of citations were also written during the operation for violations, including speeding, excessive noise, careless driving, running red lights, failure to use a turn signal, and not having proof of insurance.
