Travis Reinking, 29, was last seen hours after the attack Sunday morning, walking along some woods near that apartment, wearing nothing but a black pair of pants.
He was arrested on Monday, just over an hour after cops admitted he led police on a chase in a stolen BMW days before the rampage.
The Nashville Metro Police Department said Travis Reinking, 29, stole a BMW from a dealership in Brentwood on Tuesday and led authorities on a chase before they lost him in heavy rush hour traffic, Fox News reports.
Metro Nashville Police spokesman Don Aaron told reporters cops chased the vehicle, but then opted to track the car via a GPS device.
The vehicle was recovered the same day at Reinking’s apartment complex in neighboring Antioch. Aaron said authorities did not know Reinking’s identity at the time since he did not provide identification at the dealership before taking the vehicle.
“They had no idea who the man was,” he said.

Let’s hope this bastard gets the death penalty.
