WACO (November 21, 2012)--A Waco man was arrested Tuesday night following a car chase that ensued after police tried to stop a driver for a traffic violation.
Adrian Casarez, 40, was arrested following the chase.
Waco police Officer Steve Anderson said patrol officers attempted to stop a vehicle Tuesday night at Kennedy and South 12th Streets, but as officers approached the vehicle, the driver drove away.
Officers chased the fleeing vehicle, a 1984 Chevrolet pickup truck, along several city streets in South Waco until police deployed spike strips to try to disable the pick up.
The driver finally stopped in the 1000 block of Brown Street and was arrested.
Anderson said during the chase officers saw the driver throw items from the pick up, which later were recovered.
Casarez was charged with possession of a controlled substance and evading arrest.
His bonds total $35,000.
