Accused Kidnapper Flees Police

A Gregg County man wanted on an aggravated kidnapping charge led authorities on a two-hour chase Friday morning.

Lemarkous Demond Butler (23) was arraigned early Saturday morning.

He now faces resisting and evading arrest charges, and one charge of intervening with a public service animal. Butler allegedly kicked a Longview Police dog who found him in a wooded area just off U.S.Highway 259.

Butler was fleeing from a DPS trooper who stopped a car he was traveling in.
