High-Speed Chase to Texas Ends in Spikes and Bossier Man’s Arrest
I guess some people will never learn that you can't run from the police. Even with the fastest car, you can't outrun the five-o's ability to communicate with each other. That's why you will hardly ever see one police vehicle involved in a chase. If you run, within a matter of minutes there will be a pack chasing you and another pack waiting ahead to stop you.
I guess all of that wisdom is lost on Bossier City resident Torrey Antwine. The 23-year-old recently had the opportunity to be pulled over for a minor traffic infraction, but instead - he decided to do it the hard way. Once the red and blues kicked on in his rear-view Thursday (4/14/2022), Antwine reportedly dropped the hammer and ran.
What started as an attempted traffic stop for speeding and an improper lane change, changed to an hot-pursuit. As the chase continued, other law enforcement agencies (such as the Greenwood Police Department) joined in. Eventually, a spike strip was set up near exit 3 on I-20 to bring this dangerous situation to an end. Antwine's vehicle passed over it and was stopped just after 1 a.m. near the Texas / Louisiana border.
Torrey Antwine was arrested and charged with a huge list of crimes (which might explain his desire to run). According to the ArkLaTex Homepage, he has officially been booked into the Caddo Correctional Center on charges of:
- possession of a firearm by a felon
- possession of firearm by person convicted of domestic abuse battery
- flight from an officer
- driving on roadway marked for traffic
- possession of alcoholic beverage in vehicle
- no driver’s license
- expired license plate
- first-offense driving while intoxicated
- probation fugitive
