On Thursday 3/12/2020 Hunt County Dispatch received a call of a vehicle driving down the roadway with a rear flat tire.
HCSO & DPS units set up along the Eastbound side of I-30 to intercept the vehicle, as it was in the Caddo Mills Area on I-30EB headed towards the Greenville area.
A DPS unit was the first to get behind the vehicle in the area of I-30EB near mile marker 93 in the Greenville area. The DPS officer tried to make a traffic stop on the slow moving vehicle, which refused to pull over.
HSCO units and additional DPS units made it to the area to backup the pursuing officer. The chase reached speeds of 40MPH, eventually coming to a stop on I-30EB @ mile marker 101.
Officers were able to arrest Steven Baltimore without further incident. Baltimore was transported to the Hunt County Detention Center after being checked out by Hunt County EMS. Baltimore was booked in on charges of ‘Evading Arrest Det W/Vehicle/W Prev Conviction Or SBI’ & ‘Driving While Intoxicated 2ND’.
Great work to all of the officers that brought this chase to a safe ending.
