Man Arrested after Leading Sheriff’s Deputies in Pursuit

A Weatherford man was arrested in Wise County after fleeing from Sheriff’s deputies over the weekend.

Parker County Sheriff Larry Fowler said an anonymous citizen informed the sheriff’s office of two suspects in the Springtown area who were attempting to sell a van which was believed to have been reported stolen.

Deputies responded to the area around 1:30 p.m., Saturday, June 18, 2011, and observed a van matching the description with no front license plate, turn east onto Poolville Cut-Off Road and then quickly turn north onto Big Salty Lane.

Sheriff’s deputies reported the van disregarded their lights and sirens in an attempt to perform an investigative traffic stop, and reached speeds in excess of 80 mile-per-hour in attempts to evade deputies.

Deputies followed in pursuit of the vehicle to the 400 block of Private Road 3630, where the suspects pulled behind the residence and exited the vehicle. The passenger surrendered and was detained, while the driver fled on foot southbound over a fence and into a wooded area.

Deputies apprehended and detained the passenger. Dispatchers confirmed the vehicle was reported stolen out of Lake Worth. The vehicle was towed and a hold was placed on it as requested by Lake Worth Police Department.

The driver, identified as Timothy Ross Herring, 21, of Weatherford, was later apprehended in Wise County and arrested for numerous charges including burglary of a habitation, theft of a tractor and possession of a controlled substance. Wise County authorities confirmed an additional charge is pending against Herring for burglary of a habitation. Parker County Sheriff’s deputies will seek warrants for Herring for evading arrest detention and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle and prohibited weapon against the passenger.
