Shaquille Windsor, 22, was arrested and booked in a Coryell County Jail on Sunday after evading police on a motorcycle, with speeds reaching more than 200 mph.

According to Texas Department of Public Safety reports, about 3:45 p.m. Windsor was on U.S. Highway 190 westbound in the vicinity or W.S. Young in Killeen, and a state trooper attempted to stop Windsor for speeding.

Windsor continued westbound on U.S. 190 into Coryell County and eventually into Copperas Cove. At one point, the motorcycle exceeded 200 mph.

Windsor turned off of U.S. 190 onto Martin Luther King Jr. Drive, and the motorcycle crashed in a neighborhood.

The rider was not injured and fled on foot, DPS said.

Windsor was apprehended shortly thereafter in the same area; he was carrying a handgun at the time of his arrest. It was later confirmed Windsor is a soldier stationed at Fort Hood.

Windsor was booked into the Coryell County Jail on charges of evading with a vehicle, a felony, and unlawfully carrying a weapon, a misdemeanor. Also, citations were issued to Windsor for miscellaneous traffic offenses observed while he was evading the trooper.

Windsor is assigned to the 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division, as a petroleum supply specialist.
