Dustin Nails has multiple new charges awaiting his booking after release from the hospital.
This is the second time since February Nails has been involved in a chase and wreck, and was tased in both cases.
The chase began Thursday night, June 24, shortly after 6 p.m. when Nails, who had an outstanding warrant for a stolen car, was spotted on Grant in a Suburban.
They say Nails fled and police chased him and he jumped out of the moving SUV while a female passenger was still inside. That woman was questioned and released.
Officers pursued him on foot, but say they lost him in the 2600 block of Lebanon.
Just after 3 a.m. Friday morning police spotted him in the 1300 block of 34th Street.
Another foot pursuit began and when officers caught him they said Nails was tased by two different officers, then while they were trying to cuff him, he attempted to take one officer’s taser and the officer struck him in a pressure point to make him release it.
It’s his second visit to the hospital since February, where he was taken following a lengthy chase in a stolen car from Wichita Falls into Clay County. In that incident, Nails had several warrants issued after a woman was reportedly abducted on Lawrence Road.
Nails was also arrested in August 2020 after two women in Bridwell Park said they saw him assaulting a woman and he came up to them and told them to mind their own business or he would kill them.
