Archer County Chase

An early morning chase that started in Archer County ends with a man in handcuffs in Wichita Falls.

The chase started around 6:30 this morning on Highway 79 near Lakeside City.

And ended just after 9 this morning in front of Old High.

Police say they located a Ford Fusion stolen from a woman taking her child into a daycare.

Authorities say an Archer County deputy received a call that a man was burglarizing several businesses along Hwy. 79.

They then got word that the suspect was at "Lake Road Welding" also on Highway 79 stealing a car.

The deputy say the man was seen getting into a vehicle and driving through the doors of the shop ramming the deputy's patrol car twice.

The pursuit ended at a gas station near lakeside city and authorities say the man started running again jumping over fences.

Officers say they pepper- sprayed the man in the backyard of a daycare center but he got into a car that was left unattended and started driving away again.

Lt. Simon Dwyer with the Archer County Sheriffs office says, "Fortunately nobody got hurt and all we have is one county unity that's been wrecked Wichita PD really came through for us and we got him before he could burglarize anymore residents".

The driver is now in the archer county jail.

Authorities say they expect to charge the suspect with aggravated assault of a peace officer.
