Dallas Resident Attempts to Outrun Police

May 4, 2023 – BRANDON DONNELL JOHNSON was arrested this week after he attempted to flee law enforcement on Interstate 30.

At around 10PM Wednesday night, Greenville TX Police advised Hopkins County Dispatch that they were in pursuit of a black Chrysler 300c heading east on I-30. Greenville PD terminated their pursuit near the Hunt Hopkins County line. Cumby PD then started to pursue the Chrysler. The fleeing car was traveling at 100mph.

Working in concert with Hopkins County Sheriff’s Deputies, a stop strip device was deployed. During that deployment, a Deputy incurred a finger laceration. That laceration required medical attention at a local hospital.

After BRANDON DONNELL JOHNSON’s car hit the device, he pulled into a truck stop of the western edge of Sulphur Springs. Johnson, age 20, was taken into custody by Cumby PD. The 300c was impounded.

Because a member of law enforcement was injured during the incident, Johnson’s charge was elevated to a felony.

He is charged with:

38.04(B)(2)(B) EVADING ARREST DET CAUSE SBI (Serious Bodily Injury)
