MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - Memphis Police have arrested 28-year-old William Spears after a reckless driving incident last month.

According to the affidavit, on September 18 an officer was on patrol near Front Street and Monroe Avenue when he saw a black Dodge Charger swerving in and out of traffic lanes and driving in opposing traffic lanes.

The report says the officer tried to make a traffic stop, using blue lights and sirens, but the car refused to stop. The car then ran a red light on Monroe Avenue and B. B. King Boulevard while pedestrians were crossing the street and almost hit them.

Spears is charged with reckless driving, reckless endangerment and intentionally evading arrest.
