Two Florida Men Arrested Following High-Speed Chase Throughout the South Plains
Deputies with the Texas Department of Public Safety arrested two Florida men after a high-speed pursuit through multiple counties in the South Plains.
Texas DPS reports the incident began just before 11:30 a.m. Sunday morning (January 23rd) in Garza County. A trooper attempted to perform a traffic stop on a speeding vehicle along U.S. Highway 84 but the suspect failed to stop, initiating the pursuit.
The 145-mph chase went across portions of Garza, Lynn, and eventually Lubbock County. During the chase, the suspects threw something out of the window, but authorities have yet to identify what it was.
Finally, the chase ended when the suspect crashed on the east side of Slaton and tried to flee on foot.
The two suspects were identified as 23-year-old Jacobi Denmark, of Lauderhill, Florida, and 21-year-old Le-Shaun Demetrius Mountain, of Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
They were both charged with evading arrest or detention and fraudulent use or possession of identifying information. They remain booked in the Lubbock County Detention Center.
