WACO (August 25, 2011)—Jonathan Glen Dodd, 46, was in custody Thursday, charged with evading arrest or detention in a motor vehicle and evading arrest or detention, which is a Class B misdemeanor.

Texas Department of Public Safety investigators and U.S. marshals arrested Dodd Thursday afternoon at 6139 South 3rd St. in Waco.

Authorities have been searching for him since a high-speed chase, on Interstate 35 which started Saturday night in Waco and ended in a field in Elm Mott.

Department of Public Safety spokesman D.L. Wilson said a patrolling trooper noticed the northbound truck had a defective rear light and license plate light and attempted to pull the pickup over Saturday night.

The driver, however, sped off, pulled of the highway just south of Elm Mott and then drove into a field where he stopped, jumped out and fled on foot, leaving the woman behind.

The woman, Amy Dixon, 37, was arrested.

She was released from the McLennan County jail after posting $9,000 bond on charges including theft by check, false report to a police officer and possession of a controlled substance.

Troopers, police dogs and a helicopter were involved in the search for the man.
