Local Man Attempts to Flee DPS on County Road

Fleeing a DPS Trooper on County Road 4724 at speeds between 60 and 70 miles per hour, Jose Alejandro Gomez-Murillo, 19, of Sulphur Springs failed to negotiate a 90-degree left turn and struck a fence. The vehicle came to rest in a ravine in a pasture. When taken into custody,Gomez-Murillo was smoking a marijuana cigarette. Later two clear plastic baggies containing suspected marijuana were found in the ravine where the vehicle, Chevrolet 1500 Pickup, had stopped.
