LONGVIEW, TX - A suspect in a domestic problem call led Longview police on a chase Tuesday night on the northside of town.

Officers responded to the 4500 block of Cannon Street just after 10:30 pm.

Prior to their arrival, they were told the suspect, Nolan Parker 56 of Gilmer, was en route to the location with a gun.  They were also told that Parker was very intoxicated and driving a maroon Pontiac Vibe. 

While Officers were on their way to Cannon Street they saw the suspect vehicle on Gilmer Road and initiated a traffic stop.  During the stop the driver drove away from Officers and they began to pursue him. 

Over the course of the pursuit, the driver stopped several times and opened the car door.  Each time he failed to comply with Officers demands to get out of the vehicle, closed the door, and continued driving.

Officers were able to deploy the spike strip near the 7900 Block of U S Highway 259 in an attempt to stop Parker's car.  After Parker's car crossed the spike strips he continued to drive approximately ½ mile until his vehicle came to a stop.  Parker was taken into custody and officers transported him to the Gregg County Jail. 

He was charged with Evading Arrest in a Vehicle, DWI 1st Offense, and Unlawfully Carrying a Weapon.
