Chase suspect facing multiple charges

Jan 24, 2012

HUNT COUNTY - 34-year-old Mickey Dean Durham remained in custody Monday, three days after a dangerous chase through Hunt County.

Law enforcement at one point Friday morning had to suspend their search for Durham, who was pursued after reportedly stealing a vehicle, but eventually located the suspect later that day.

Durham attempted to elude state troopers during the early morning pursuit by traveling the wrong way on interstate 30 and attempting to crash into several vehicles. He would eventually exit his vehicle near the 87 mile marker and a perimeter was then set up.

The subsequent search turned up nothing and a manhunt was called off later that morning. But Durham was spotted a truck stop that evening and taken into custody after a brief pursuit. 

He faces multiple charges including vehicle theft and felony evading arrest, with more charges pending.
