Grand Jury indicts two Lubbock suspects

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The Lubbock man who led deputies on a high speed chase across two counties stands indicted.

On Tuesday, a Lubbock County Grand Jury indicted Eric Gonzales on charges of aggravated robbery and aggravated assault on a public servant.

It all started the morning of April 27th. The Lubbock County Sheriff's Office tried to serve an arrest warrant on Gonzales whom they believed was living in a storage unit in the 5900 block of 50th Street. When they got there, Gonzales drove through the garage door of the unit, in a stolen SUV, almost hitting a deputy. That's when he drove through a field before wrecking the SUV along the Marsha Sharp Freeway.

He then ran toward the Target parking lot, where he carjacked a vehicle and continued the chase toward Hockley County. He then wrecked the stolen car near Levelland. But he wasn't done finished, he then took off on foot, before deputies were able to take him into custody.

He is still in the Lubbock County jail.

And a Lubbock teen who police say wrecked her car with a toddler inside was indicted Tuesday.

Eighteen year old Maria Magana was indicted for intoxication assault and injury to a child.

According to police, Magana slammed the car into the back of a pickup in the 2700 block of 81st Street back in February.

And one year old Deshaun Washington was reportedly riding in the front seat of that car. Police say the baby was not in a car seat or buckled up.
