Car chase leads to 3 arrests
On Sunday, June 12, at 2:05 a.m. Red Oak Officer Dustin Bragg attempted to stop a silver colored Dodge Stratus driving south bound on Interstate 35E at Red Oak Road for an expired registration.
The vehicle failed to yield to Bragg’s emergency lights and siren when Bragg called Red Oak Officer Jason Meeks for assistance. Meeks caught up to them around the 401 mile marker south bound Interstate 35E in Waxahachie. Several Ellis County Sherriff Deputies joined the pursuit which continued S/B IH-35E.
