Area Man Leads Police on Chase, Again

The passenger in a police chase Thursday was released from jail on Friday, only to lead Lubbock Police on another chase Saturday.

A Plainview man is back behind bars Sunday night after police say he stole a car and then led them on a dangerous chase through the streets of Lubbock Saturday night. The chase began just before 9 p.m. the 1300 block of 21st Street, and ended about six minutes later at 17th and Avenue M. That's when police rammed the front of the stolen vehicle that 44 year-old Victor Glenn Hastey was driving.

Police say they had to taser Hastey before he could be taken into custody. He is now in the Lubbock County Jail with more than half a dozen charges. Those include attempted capital murder, assault with a deadly weapon, and assaulting a peace officer.

This is the second time in less than a week that Hastey was involved in a police chase. He was the passenger in a high-speed chase that started in New Deal on Thursday but need in Southeast Lubbock.

The driver, Jarrett Austin, ran a red light and collided with a utility truck at the intersection of I-27 and U-S 84. That car also turned out to be stolen. Both men were arrested. Austin remains in jail Sunday night on charges stemming from the chase.
