Police chase through two counties ends in Brownfield

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – An early Saturday morning police chase ends with a multi county effort to arrest one man in Terry County. Our storm chaser David Drummond caught up with the action as 26-year-old Garret Lane Wickson, from Seminole, drove into Brownfield. "When we got behind this subject he was all over the road. When we attempted to stop him he fled. Thanks to Brownfield PD and Terry County Sheriff's Office, we got him shut down here in Brownfield," said Ropesville Chief of Police Kenny Greenlee.

Ropesville Police, DPS Troopers and deputies with the Terry County Sheriff's Office were close behind as Brownfield Police laid out spike strips to stop the vehicle. And although it punctured the tires, Wickson continued to try to evade authorities while driving on the SUV's wheels. At one point a patrol unit in front of the SUV slows down Wickson, but he crosses into the median to pass the car.

He eventually hits a curb in a residential area and comes to a stop. Wickson tries to reverse but crashes into the patrol units blocking him and finally gives up. Police arrested Wickson who had an outstanding warrant out of Lubbock County.

He remains in the Terry County Jail charged with evading arrest and aggravated assault on a police officer with a motor vehicle.
