On January 10, 2016 deputies with Harris County Constable Mark Herman’s Office attempted to conduct a traffic stop on a vehicle in the 14300 block of the North Freeway. The driver of the vehicle failed to stop and fled from the deputy at a high rate of speed. The deputy pursued the vehicle for approximately 4.9 miles, at which time, the vehicle wrecked into a concrete pole under the overpass of West Road.
The defendant, later identified as Ricardo Antonio Soto, attempted to flee the scene on foot, however deputies chased him down and arrested him. During the investigation, Soto was found to be in possession of 3.1 grams of Crystal Methamphetamine.
“Soto was arrested, charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance and Evading Arrest with a Motor Vehicle, and booked into the Harris County Jail. Soto’s bond was set at $20000 out of the 337th District Court.”
