Upshur County Arrest

A man wanted on several violations led officials on a high speed chase before crashing in Upshur County. The Upshur County Sheriff's Department says Michael Dwayne Thomas was chased by Big Sandy police earlier Monday, but they pulled back when his speed began to endanger other drivers. Later, they caught up with him again, and this time, were able to arrest him after crossing Highway 271 and 154.

Lieutenant Wayne Young with the Upshur County Sheriff's Department said, "This boy was not going to stop for nothing or nobody. To my knowledge, he was a dangerous individual and glad he's off the streets."

Thomas was wanted on parole violations, a stolen vehicle and a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon in Van Zandt County.
