Spike strips end 1 hour long Lubbock car chase, man in custody

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Lubbock Police Officers, Lubbock County Sheriff's Office Deputies and DPS Troopers were all involved in a car chase early on Sunday morning. Lubbock Police tell us the pursuit lasted about an hour and finally ended when LSO deployed spikes on the ground at I-27 and FM 1294. The male driver was taken in to police custody.

The incident began at 3:45 a.m. when an LPD officer was responding to a domestic disturbance at South Loop 289 and Martin Luther King Boulevard. In route the officer noticed a reckless driver, and Lubbock Police say they then realized that was the person who the disturbance call was about. The male driver had allegedly taken a female's car and was driving away.

Shortly thereafter multiple officials from the  three agencies responded to the call and began a 1 hour long pursuit.

LPD tells us they were led all over Lubbock County. Just before 5 a.m. the spike strips stopped the driver. He is in police custody.

We have been informed that the suspect arrested is Coleton Neal Hinsley, age 21.

He has been booked in the Lubbock County Detention Facility, and is facing the following charges:

• Evading Arrest in Motor Vehicle
• Unauthorized Use of a Motor Vehicle
• Reckless Driving
• Felony Warrant
• X3 Misdemeanor Warrants
