A pursuit was initiated as the vehicle traveled south on FM 1485 through several curves almost striking two vehicles head-on as he drove down the wrong side of the roadway. He then turned into White Oak Subdivision and at speeds close to 90 miles per hour tried to lose the deputy. Back to FM 1485, he traveled north to Linda turning into the Lazy Caney Pines Subdivision. The chase ended when he pulled into a driveway at 17680 Linda, ran out of the vehicle into the house. With deputies on foot behind, he ran out the back of the house and into the woods. Montgomery County Precinct 4 K-9 was assisted by Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office K-9 as they searched the woods.
