Clarksville Police Department - CPDClarksville, TN – A mid-morning traffic stop resulted in a slightly injured police officer and an aggravated assault warrant in the Kroger’s Grocery parking lot at 1489 Madison Street.

McLaughlin stated in the police report, “As I was attempting to pull Mr. Jackson out of the vehicle, he placed the vehicle in ‘drive’, hitting me as he fled the scene, with the inside of the door frame striking my right elbow and forearm.”

McLaughlin’s injuries did not require medical treatment.

Jackson, who has over thirty booking mug shots on file at the Montgomery County Jail since 2007, has previous arrests for drug offenses, patronizing prostitution, burglary, parole violation, evading arrest, driving on a revoked license, probation violations, public intoxication, resisting a stop, forgery, domestic assault, vandalism, and contempt of court.

Jackson is described as a 5’9”, 165 lb., 46-year-old white male with brown hair and green eyes. The Tennessee license plate number of the 1999 four-door black Honda Accord is 3D12A6.

Shortly after 3:30pm, District 2 patrol officers located Eric Todd Jackson sitting in his car in the Big Lots parking lot on Riverside Drive. Jackson placed his car in reverse and attempted to leave when officers approached, but his escape route was quickly blocked by several patrol cars.

Officers had to smash the driver side window of the Accord with a collapsible baton and forcibly remove Jackson from the car to make the arrest.

Jackson, who appeared to be under the influence of one or more controlled substances, was transported to Tennova Healthcare for treatment of minor injuries incurred during the arrest.

No additional officers were injured.

Items described as drug paraphernalia were discovered during an inventory of the suspect vehicle. Additional criminal charges stemming from the Big Lots incident are pending.

    Guess I’m not too intelligent when it come to the law but why is this man out on the streets with all he’s got going on?

    WTF? There shouldn’t even be a bond. Better yet he shouldn’t have been out! WTH if I get arrested 30 times do you really think that I have learned my lesson and there won’t be a 31st time? We are in series need of a overhaul of our local judiciary system!

    Pro-tip: If you assault a police officer and are “on the run,” don’t park on one of the busiest streets in town.
