From Greenville Police Department: 

On the afternoon of March 23, 2018, multiple law enforcement vehicles pursued a white 2015 Chevrolet into Greenville, Texas on Hwy 69. The direction of travel was from the south city limits northbound into Greenville. The pursuit turned north on Sayle Street from Hwy 69, then turned west onto Oneal Street. The vehicle tires were spiked by law enforcement just prior to entering Greenville.

The suspect’s vehicle tires separated from the rims by the time the suspect Chevrolet reached the area of Park Street. The vehicle turned west on Park Street and left the roadway in the 4100 block where it was disabled.


After the vehicle stopped, officers engaged the driver (sole occupant) with verbal dialog. Officer James Hamilton, a member of the Greenville Police Dept. Crisis Intervention Team was on scene. Officer Hamilton was directed to resume verbal communications with the suspect and was able to talk the driver into surrendering. The driver was taken into custody and transported to Hunt Regional Medical Center for evaluation.


The driver was found to have a State of Texas parole warrant. The driver’s name is being withheld until he has been arraigned.
