High Speed Chase Ends In Two Arrests

   A man with multiple warrants led authorities on a high-speed chase through two counties Wednesday morning. Authorities say the man leading the chase was Alfred Everhart, who already has three felony arrest warrants against him. One for evading authorities, two for escaping from police.

   It started on F.M. 14 in Smith County when a suspect with five outstanding warrants fled from authorities, and ended a half hour later on CR 7967 inside Wood County.

   A few civilians living nearby witnessed the whole chase and even helped deputies in their pursuit.

   "This fellow was running down the road, and then there came the deputies car running after him," said Charles Reed who lived nearby. "He jumped the fence down here, and went into that pasture, which is full of briars and trees."

   Charles's son Johnny, who was visiting, chased after Everhart and tackled him in the woods. Everhart was then arrested along with Tomeka Johnigan who was in the car with him.

   Everhart faces two counts of evading arrest. Johnigan was also arrested, accused of lying to authorities. The Wood County Sheriff's office is checking to see if the car Everhart was driving is stolen.

   Wood County deputies, DPS troopers, and officers from Mineola and Hawkins assisted in the pursuit.
