The man who led police on two high-speed car chases throughout the city over the weekend was arraigned Sunday on three felony charges and a misdemeanor by Justice of the Peace Bill Cooke.
Deon Lashawn Clay, 26, was held in the Bell County Jail $295,000 total bond as of 5 p.m. Monday.
Clay was charged with an aggravated robbery in Travis County, evading arrest with a vehicle in both Coryell County and Bell County and making a false statement to obtain between $100 and $750 credit in Bell County.
He also had an outstanding blue warrant for a parole violation, according to the Bell County Jail roster.
An hourlong, high-speed car chase around Killeen on Saturday ended with Clay’s arrest.
The chase began in Copperas Cove at 4:01 p.m., Killeen police Sgt. Nathan McCown said.
It spanned W.S. Young Drive, Clear Creek Road, Trimmier Road and Fort Hood Street and ended when a Texas Department of Public Safety trooper disabled the Dodge Challenger driven by the suspect at the intersection of Rancier Avenue and South Fort Hood Street.
“It spanned most of the city,” McCown said.
Clay led police on a chase and escaped a day earlier, with an 18-month-old child in the vehicle. The child was not injured.
Killeen police, DPS, FBI and Texas Rangers officers were all involved in the case.
