Here is a video of the Saturday pursuit which led to the arrest of 27-year-old Kiran McLain.

 

At 12:06 p.m. Saturday, officers received a report that a man’s Optimum work truck had just been stolen from Comfort Inn & Suites in the 4400 block of South First Street. The vehicle – a maroon Ford Lariat truck with company stickers – was reportedly inbound on S. First Street with the suspect behind the wheel.

 

Officers caught up to the vehicle near Lufkin Mall and attempted to initiate a traffic stop but the driver, who was later identified as McLain, refused.

 

A six-minute, high-speed pursuit then ensued which began on South First Street and ended on state Highway 103 east.

 

McLain bailed out of the vehicle and attempted to flee on foot into a wooded area, but officers took him into custody.

 

McLain is charged with unauthorized use of a vehicle, evading arrest with a vehicle, evading arrest, and criminal mischief for a fence that he damaged during the pursuit.
