Convicted felon leads deputies on high-speed chase

An early morning chase ended with a convicted felon in custody, likely on his way back to prison.

Dallas County Sheriff’s Office deputies chased the speeding car from West Dallas along Interstate 30 into Mesquite around 2 a.m. Wednesday.

They were able to spike the tires near Eastfield College, but the driver kept going. He finally stopped in Rowlett on the bridge over Lake Ray Hubbard.

Deputies quickly arrested the man. They found a mask and other property as they searched his car.

The sheriff’s office has not yet released the man’s name, but said he spent time in prison for aggravated robbery and had an outstanding warrant.

He is being held in the Lew Sterrett Jail for his parole violation and is expected to be charged with felony evading arrest. If deputies connect him to other recent crimes, he could face even more charges.
