Suspect Leads Lubbock Police on High Speed Chase

A Lubbock county man is behind bars after leading authorities on a high-speed chase that stretched across the entire city.

It started at South Loop 289 and University around 10:30 Wednesday night. That's where police tried to pull over a Ford Mustang and a Dodge pickup for drag racing. The mustang pulled over but the truck did not.

Instead, the driver led Lubbock police and DPS troopers on an hour and a half long chase down the Interstate, then through east, central and south Lubbock. Finally, the suspect pulled into the Town and Country parking lot at 82nd and U.S. 87.

During the arrest, the suspect would not get on the ground and was bitten by a police dog. He was treated for the puncture wound.

33-year old Kevin Salois was arrested on an outstanding warrant for speeding. He now faces additional charges of evading arrest.
