Nashville Metro Council applauds Sgt. Mark Chesnut's bravery

Tennnessean Sgt. Mark Chesnut was critically wounded during a traffic stop on Interstate 40 near Bellevue on June 25. A prison escapee on the run from Mississippi is accused of shooting the 22-year police veteran multiple times as he sat in his patrol car. "This has been a trying time for me and my family," Chesnut said. "I want to thank the nurses and doctors at Vanderbilt who saved my life. I also want to thank the citizens of Nashville for their generosity. The hundreds of cards and well wishes we've received have been unbelievable."
