NASHVILLE – Less than a day after being placed on the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation’s Top 10 Most Wanted list, Bobby Eugene Blaylock was captured in Nashville this morning.

Shortly after 8:00, Blaylock, 39, was taken into custody in East Nashville after officers from the Metro Nashville Police Department recognized the vehicle he was driving from information TBI issued when placing Blaylock on the Top 10 list on Friday. Metro officers identified the vehicle on Main Street, near Yeaman Place. Blaylock then turned from Main onto Yeaman in an apparent attempt to avoid law enforcement. Before officers could initiate a traffic stop, however, Blaylock exited the vehicle and began to run. He stopped when commanded by officers, after which they placed him under arrest.

The Ashland City man was wanted by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation and the Cheatham County Sheriff’s Office on charges of Rape and Violation of the Sex Offender Registry. On April 3rd, Blaylock physically and sexually assaulted his victim multiple times before fleeing in a stolen vehicle.

Blaylock is currently being held at the Davidson County Jail, and will face charges in Nashville of Vehicle Theft, Driving without a License, and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia. Additionally, a hold will be placed on him until his transfer to Cheatham County. At the time of this release, a current booking photo was not available.
