LUBBOCK, Texas — Lubbock Police charged Jaime Ray Cortez, 19, with evading and other charges after a vehicle chase Tuesday afternoon.
A police report said Cortez was driving west at the 3000 block of 1st Street as he was trying to get away from officers in a pursuit.
“[The drive] collided with an unattended vehicle legally parked on the side of the roadway at 3000 1st Street,” the police report said. “[He] then exited the vehicle and continued west on foot.”
A photojournalist at the scene was able to observe K-9 and police gang units on the scene as they searched for Cortez. Police radio traffic indicated the chase started at about 3:55 p.m.
Cortez was already wanted for a parole violation, according to court records. And he was also charged theft of a firearm. The police report said there was a second police report. But the second report was not available yet.
Cortez was held Wednesday on bonds totaling $12,250 plus the parole violation.
