UPDATE: Spring, Texas – March 6th, 2017: On February 27th 2017, a deputy from Constable Mark Herman’s Office attempted to conduct a traffic stop on a vehicle after observing the vehicle traveling at a high rate of speed and run a stop sign. Upon seeing the deputy, the driver refused to stop and began accelerating. After a short pursuit, the suspect drove into a parking lot and jumped from the vehicle and began fleeing on foot.
Deputies immediately began setting a wide perimeter in the area to contain the suspect. Additional manpower including Canine and Air Support also responded to assist in the search. With the ground area surrounded and a helicopter above, an extensive ground search began. Deputies on the perimeter also searched vehicles coming into and leaving the area. A Yellow Cab coming into the area was stopped and the driver questioned. Deputies learned that he had received a call for a fare in the area. Further investigation revealed that the cab driver was provided fare information from Yellow Cab that matched the suspect. With the use of this information deputies were able to go to an address close by where with the use of canine, they found the suspect hiding in a backyard patio area and he was taken into custody.

The initiative will consist of additional police patrols that will specifically target Impaired Drivers and the criminal element in North Harris County.
Investigations will be conducted and coordinated with TABC (Texas, Alcohol, and Beverage Commission) on all suspected Impaired Drivers arrested to determine if they are coming from an establishment where they have consumed alcoholic beverages. Law enforcement will then work to pursue charges on those establishments if warranted.
“If you choose to drink and drive impaired, then you choose to go to jail. With the additional patrols on our streets this weekend, the chances of you getting caught will be in law enforcement’s favor.” – Constable Mark Herman
