A DPS Trooper arrived on the scene and put the suspect, Chaise Lee Daniel, 29, of 300 W. Lubbock in Brenham in custody. He was cuffed and seatbelted in the front seat of the DPS Tahoe. For officer safety reasons DPS vehicles do not have cages separating the front and rear seat so that prisoners must be transported in the front seat. As the Trooper worked the crash Daniel slipped his cuffs and was able to get into the driver’s seat of the Trooper’s SUV and flee. When he got to FM 1485 and I-69 Daniel ran the red light and struck two more vehicles then fled on foot. A Precinct 4 Deputy was able to capture and detain him.
