A 31-year-old Mount Pleasant man allegedly chased after and rammed a 36-year-old Sulphur Springs woman’s car with his SUV early Friday morning, according to arrest reports.
Sulphur Springs Police officers were dispatched just before 3 a.m. July 16, 2021, in the 100 block of South Davis Street, where someone in a vehicle was reportedly chasing someone in another vehicle and ramming it. Upon arrival, officers reported seeing a GMC Denali Yukon fleeing the area. They conducted a traffic stop on the SUV on Davis Street at Hinnant Street, then, and took the driver, identified in arrest reports as Michael Tareze Evans of Mount Pleasant, into custody around 3:45 a.m. on an aggravated assault with a deadly weapon charge.
After investigation, officers determined the man was chasing after the woman he’d reportedly been in a relationship with. He had also rammed the Yukon into the Nissan Altima she was driving several times, according Officer Robble Acosta noted in arrest reports.
Upon arrival at Hopkins County jail, Evans was placed into a “V-cell”, one specifically designed to reduce potential harm to anyone inside of it, due to his level of agitation.
Evans — who is also known to use the aliases Michael Tarezz Evans, Mike Evans, Michael Martin, Michael Hope and Fish Terez — remained in Hopkins County jail late Friday morning on the second-degree felony assault charge.
