Jeremy Lee Logan, the driver allegedly involved in the high-speed chase that took place on Southern Adventist University’s campus on Oct. 7, has been arrested and taken into custody by the Collegedale Police Department (CPD), according to a post made on the department’s Facebook and Instagram accounts.

Logan was first taken into custody by Bradley County law enforcement–the county which Logan is a resident of–according to Assistant Chief Jamie Heath. 

“Once we were advised that he was being held at the Bradley County Jail on our warrants we transported him to the Hamilton County Jail,” Heath wrote in an email to the Accent. “Chief Sapp and the Collegedale Police Department appreciate our partnering agencies who continued to help us locate and finally arrest Jermey Lee Logan as he remained on the move to avoid capture.” 

Logan was involved with two pursuits involving the Collegedale police and was successfully able to evade law enforcement during both chases, according to previous Accent articles.

The first pursuit took place in May of 2022 where CPD officers chased Logan’s vehicle into Bradley County, but terminated the pursuit due to safety reasons. The second pursuit occurred in Oct. 2022 when Logan drove through Southern’s campus, allegedly endangering students and other drivers, according to Heath.

Logan’s subsequent crash at the end of Camp Road during the October pursuit assisted CPD officers in identifying him as the alleged driver involved in both pursuits. 

He has been charged with four felonies and six misdemeanors including two charges of evading arrests, two charges of driving on a revoked license, tampering with evidence, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of stolen property, vandalism and aggravated assault on law enforcement, according to the post. 

Logan is currently being held at the Hamilton County Jail with an $18,000 bond and his court date has been set for April 2, 2023 at 3 p.m.
