KPD: Man leads police on 100 mph chase

Posted

A 23-year-old man is facing felony charges after police said he led them on a high-speed chase Monday night.

Vinnie Randall Angelos was arraigned Wednesday by Justice of Peace Bill Cooke on a charge of evading arrest in a vehicle.

According to an arrest affidavit, Angelos was on a motorcycle when a Killeen police officer attempted to pull him over for speeding about 7 p.m. Monday on East Stan Schlueter Loop.

Angelos didn’t stop, but began weaving in and out of traffic. Angelos went through a green light at the intersection of Stan Schlueter and W.S. Young Drive. He then ran a red light and continued south on Trimmier Road at 84 mph, the affidavit stated.

The motorcycle continued west on Stagecoach Road, reaching speeds of 100 mph. Angelos ran a second red light at Stagecoach and South Fort Hood Street. The chase then turned north onto Bunny Trail and then west onto Tatonka Drive. Angleos stopped the motorcycle because Tatonka is a dead-end road, the affidavit stated.

Cooke set Angelos’ bail at $20,000.

In an unrelated case, Cooke also arraigned Morgan Ernest Huffins, 48, on a felony charge of criminal mischief, diversion of electricity, less than $20,000. Huffins’ bail was set at $20,000.
