Lebanon police arrested a man wanted on several warrants in multiple counties.

Officers said they were warned to check the Coles Ferry Pike area for a newer model Chevrolet Malibu with tinted windows Sunday at about 7:45 p.m. The occupant was William Sanchez Davis, 29, of Gallatin, who was known to have active warrants.

After locating and following the car, officers made a traffic stop at the Citgo at 130 E. High St.

Officers said the car did not immediately stop, but continued to circle around the gas station building. They said when the car got back to the front of the building, the driver got out and ran on foot. 

Additionally, officers said they noticed another person inside the car. The passenger was later identified as Courtney Caldwall.

Officers then ran after the driver headed south on Lake Street. 

After noting Davis was not inside the car, officers then drove to Sycamore Street behind a house at the corner of Lake Street and Sycamore Street where other officers caught Davis. He was arrested without incident.

According to an NCIC database check, Davis had warrants out of Sumner County for driving on a suspended license, evading arrest and criminal impersonation. He also had active warrants in Wilson County for sale of schedule II drugs, probation violation and failure to appear.

Officers said a computer check also found Davis to have a suspended license for failure to satisfy citation in 2004 out of Wilson County with five prior driving on a suspended license charges dating back to 2004 in Wilson County.

Davis was charged with driving on a suspended license, evading arrest and sale of schedule II drugs.
