Mt. Juliet, Tenn. – A man wanted for 12 warrants was apprehended after a traffic stop in a Mt. Juliet neighborhood. While patrolling through the Willoughby Station neighborhood, a police officer spotted a car driving on the wrong side of the road directly towards him on December 27, 2014 around 12:35 p.m. As the officer turned around to stop the driver, the Ford Contour turned around in a home’s yard- almost striking a stop sign post.

The driver stopped his car after the officer signaled for him to do so, and he was identified as Jamison Emler, 18, of Old Hickory. Emler’s information was entered by the officer into his in-car computer. A warrants check, through the FBI’s National Crime Information Center, revealed that Emler was wanted out of Sumner County.

Emler was wanted for 12 different warrants related burglary and theft, and the officer was able to take him into custody without incident. Emler told the officer that he was in the neighborhood to pick up a friend.

Emler was arrested and booked into the Wilson County Jail, where he was held on the Sumner County charges.
