Suspect leads police on a chase from Fort Worth to Dallas

Posted: Updated:

A suspected car thief led police on a chase from Fort Worth to West Dallas early Friday morning.

Fort Worth officers were alerted that a white Dodge pickup was stolen. They spotted the vehicle around 2 a.m. and the suspect sped away. The chase took off down Interstate 20 into Dallas. The alleged thief turned onto Tumalo Trail and hit a dead end where officers used a spike strip to stop the truck.

The suspect then jumped out and attempted to get away on foot. He climbed over a guardrail and rolled down a hill into a creek. Officers went into the water and pulled him out.

The suspect is charged with Unauthorized Use of a Motor Vehicle and Felony Evading.
