Vehicle chase, crash, leads to arrest of man wanted in Lexington

A man wanted by the Lexington Police Department on a charge of aggravated assault was arrested Monday after a chase that started in Savannah and ended with a two-vehicle crash near Airport Market in Hardin County, according to U.S. Marshal Tyreece Miller.
Miller said the man, Todd Robbins, who was reportedly also wanted on a probation violation warrant, had additionally “been identified as a person of interest in a Chester County homicide which occurred this past weekend.”
In a news release Monday night, Marshals said they got information Robbins was in Savannah Monday afternoon and began looking for him. Local officers spotted Robbins near Komfort Motel on Wayne Road and he fled, leading them on a pursuit which lasted for several miles.
Robbins crashed into another vehicle at the intersection of Airport Road and Florence Road south of the city. He then fled on foot but was apprehended by the two occupants of the vehicle he hit, who kept him from escaping until officers arrived, the news release states.
Marshals said they were assisted in the investigation by the Savannah Police Department, Hardin County Sheriff’s Office, Chester County Sheriff’s Office and the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.
