CARROLLTON (CBSDFW.COM) – A 54-year-old man led authorities on a pursuit from Carrollton to downtown Dallas overnight and is being charged with evading arrest, officials say.
Police say the chase began at around 2:20 a.m. Saturday when an officer tried to pull over an SUV with men suspected of attempting to break into a tractor-trailer in the 2000 block of Luna Road.
According to police, the driver and three passengers in the SUV got out of the vehicle and ran away on foot when they stopped in Farmers Branch.
Keith Leonard Randle, 54, took the driver’s seat and led police on a chase for nearly 30 miles, police say.
