GATESVILLE (January 29, 2014) Two men were in custody Wednesday in Gatesville after they were arrested following a high-speed chase through Bosque and Coryell counties that left a state trooper's patrol car damaged.
Brian Wade Pierce, 36, was ordered held in lieu of $80,000 bond, charged with evading arrest or detention with a vehicle, possession of marijuana less than two ounces and driving while intoxicated third or more, jail records showed.
Clint Gregory, 22, was ordered held without bond on a motion to revoke probation on a drug charge.
The two were arrested Tuesday evening in Gatesville after they crashed their car into a Department of Public Safety patrol car during a high-speed chase that started in Bosque County.
The chase started just after 7:15 p.m. Tuesday and continued into Coryell County where it finally ended at around 7:40 p.m. at the intersection of Waco Street and North Lutterloh Avenue, in front of the H-E-B store.
No one was injured in the crash.
A communications officer for the Department of Public Safety said she did not know why the trooper was chasing the vehicle, but the trooper reported he was in pursuit just after 7:15p.m.
Chief Coryell County Sheriff's Deputy Joe Blakley said county deputies joined in the chase as it came into Gatesville.
Both men also have outstanding warrants issued out of Coryell County for other offenses, Blakley said.
