Man Leads Law Enforcement Agencies On Chase Throughout the South Plains
A Texas DPS trooper and other law enforcement were involved in a high-speed chase Wednesday morning in Lynn, Lubbock and Hale counties.
The trooper stopped a 2015 Dodge Challenger on US 87 in Lynn County around 11:40 a.m. on Jan. 17. The vehicle then sped off after the trooper exited his vehicle.
The Dodge Challenger was later spotted by a Lubbock County Sheriff’s Deputy on MLK and the chase resumed again. The suspect led authorities onto East Loop 289, then I-27 traveling northbound. The suspect’s vehicle was successfully intercepted on I-27 in Hale County, near Plainview.
DPS used spikes to deflate the vehicle's tires.
The driver of the vehicle was immediately arrested and identified as 28-year-old Chez Eugene Weaver of Lubbock. He was wanted on a parole violation for burglary and additional charges are pending.
