LONGVIEW — Longview police are led on a late night chase Wednesday after being called to a domestic problem.
Officers were called to the 4500 Block of Cannon Street at around 10:36 p.m. Prior to their arrival, they were told the suspect, 56-year old Nolan Parker of Gilmer, was en route to the location with a gun. They were also told that Parker was very intoxicated and driving.
While Officers were on their way to Cannon Street they saw the suspected vehicle on Gilmer Road and tried to pull Parker over. During the stop, the driver drove away from officers and they began to pursue him. Over the course of the pursuit, the driver stopped several times and opened the car door. Each time he failed to comply with officers demands to get out of the vehicle, closed the door, and continued driving.
Officers were able to deploy a spike strip near the 7900 Block of US Highway 259. After Parker’s car crossed the spike strips he continued to drive approximately half a mile until his vehicle came to a stop.
Parker was taken into custody and officers took him to the Gregg County Jail. He was charged with evading arrest, DWI, and unlawfully carrying a weapon.
