A 59-year-old rural Sulphur Springs man allegedly evaded police by driving at a high rate of speed through a residential area of town early Saturday morning.
Sulphur Springs Police Officer Francisco Castro attempted to stop a Chrysler 200 at 12:25 a.m. March 6 on Freeman Street at Como Street for failure to signal 100 feet prior to a lane change. Instead of stopping, the driver continued at a high rate of speed from the 800 block of Fuller Street and did not stop until he reached the 600 block of Lamar Street, according to arrest reports.
The driver, identified as Michael Oneal Harrison, was arrested at 12:33 a.m. Saturday for evading arrest or detention with a vehicle. He was issued a warning for the traffic violation and a citation for failure to maintain financial responsibility, according to police reports.
Harrison remained in Hopkins County jail at 9:30 a.m. Saturday. Bond on the second-degree felony charge was set at $10,000, according to jail reports.
