A police chase involving multiple local departments ended in the arrest of a Dallas man Saturday night.

Lawrence Boone

Rhome Police Chief Sam Love said Officer Brody Brown tried to pull over Lawrence Boone, 51, for speeding on U.S. 81/287 near the Texas 114 crossover. Boone evaded Brown and continued northbound on 287.

“He took off and started throwing dope out of the window,” Love said.

Rhome and Decatur police departments, Wise County Sheriff’s Office and the Texas Department of Public Safety joined in the pursuit. As Boone approached Decatur, DPS deployed spike strips near Farm Road 2264, taking out his vehicle’s right tires. Another vehicle, driven by David Crunk, also ran over the spike strips, damaging its right tires as well. Judi Hines-Crunk, David’s wife, said DPS paid to replace the tires.

Boone’s vehicle came to a stop near Karl Klement Ford. Boone took off on foot but was apprehended by officers.

Officers later located drug evidence at various locations along the side of the road.

Boone was taken to the Wise County Jail, and he was charged with two counts of possession of a controlled substance greater than 4 grams, tamper/fabricate physical evidence with intent to impair, evading arrest/detention, evading arrest/detention with vehicle and resist arrest, search or transport. He also violated a parole order from the Texas Department of Criminal Justice in Austin.

His bail was set at $80,000.
