A 40 minute police chase Friday, February 25th ended with a man being taken into custody and being charged with attempted capital murder. It's not the first time 34-year-old Kevin Salois has taken police for a ride.

You may recall, Salois led police on a 90 minute chase across Lubbock last May. He was captured in the parking lot of a convenience store in South Lubbock. Friday night, he was custody.

Suspect Leads Lubbock Police on High Speed Chase
The driver was originally being pulled over for drag racing.

Around 8:50am Friday morning, the chase started at High Gate Apartments. Salois was not letting anyone into the laundry facility. He doesn't even live there. That's when residents called police. After police surrounded him, he took off on foot toward Wal-Mart.

Still on foot, he ran to Resthaven Funeral Home. He found a pair of keys had been left in a work truck, he stole the truck and took off down 19th street toward Reese.

Lubbock Police Spokesman, Lt. Roy Bassett said, "He tried to lose them (police) by driving across fields, through dry Playa Lakes, that kind of stuff and as I understand it the pursuit zigzagged through that portion of town and began to move west."

Bassett said, at some point on 19th street, Salois slammed into a patrol car on purpose injuring the officer. After that, his truck became disabled, he then tried to steal another truck.

After that was unsuccessful, he ran on foot again ending up at a vacant house in the 8700 block of 19th. "The house behind me, he was able to gain entry into that house and officers surrounded the house and officers from LPD and DPS troopers went into the house and took him into custody," said Bassett. That happened around 10:25am, the end of a 40 minute chase that would eventually land Salois in jail.

Salois will be charged with attempted capital murder for hitting the police car, he'll also be charged with evading arrest and auto theft. He was already wanted for numerous state and federal warrants.
