Armed Man Stops Thief from Stealing His Vehicle

A Clarksville man who tried to steal an unoccupied and running vehicle outside the Kwik Stop Market at 3710 Gallatin Pike didn’t count on the owner being armed and taking action to stop the crime in progress.

The 28-year-old victim came out of the market at 9:45 p.m. Tuesday to find Jaden Webb, 20, of Stateline Road in Clarksville, sitting in the driver seat. The victim confronted Webb, who accelerated and tried to flee, dragging the victim who was hanging onto the driver door. Webb crashed into an SUV (also stolen) in which he had arrived. Another occupant of the SUV kicked the victim as he pulled a gun to take Webb into custody. The victim fired at the second man as he fled on foot while continuing to hold Webb for police.

Detectives from the precision policing robbery initiative quickly responded. As they approached after having the victim drop his gun, Webb tried to flee, but was immediately apprehended. Webb is jailed on charges of auto theft, aggravated assault, possession of burglary tools, evading arrest and resisting arrest. A judicial commissioner set his bond at $40,000.
