ROGERSVILLE — Two Kingsport men nabbed after a high-speed police pursuit from Rogersville to Morristown late Thursday night had allegedly been in another police pursuit earlier that day and had gotten away.

The Rogersville police pursuit began shortly after the men stopped at the Quality Inn motel on Highway 11-W at about 11:30 p.m. Thursday, allegedly to inject synthetic bath salts in the motel’s public bathroom.

They had gone to Rogersville that night to bail out a girlfriend who was arrested earlier in the day after the men were allegedly involved in a police pursuit in Church Hill.
