Defendant charged with endangering officer

CROSSVILLE — The Cumberland County Grand Jury has handed down two superseding indictments against a Crossville man who is accused of twice leading police on car chases and, in one instance, endangering a police officer with an open syringe.

Timothy James Alcorn, 38, whose last known address was listed on Orange Circle, was re-indicted on charges of reckless endangerment, felony evading arrest, simple possession of Oxycodone and possession of drug paraphernalia in connection with a Feb. 14, 2011 incident.

He was also indicted on charges of felony evading arrest, domestic assault and fourth offense driving on a suspended license, stemming from a March 30, 2011 incident.

In the February 2011 incident, Alcorn is accused of fleeing from a traffic stop on Dooley St. and once stopped and taken into custody, he was asked if he had any sharp objects in his pockets.

Ptl. Dustin Lester wrote in a report at the time that Alcorn said no, and that moments later police found the open syringe which held oxycodone in his pants pocket.

In the second incident, police were dispatched to investigate a report of a domestic violence complaint when Alcorn allegedly fled from officers.
