NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) -

Nacogdoches Police arrested a man who is accused of leading officers through a vehicle chase followed by a foot chase through the SFA cafeteria.

Naitropelus O-Shune Thomas, 25, is charged with state-jail felony endangering a child, state-jail felony evading arrest with a vehicle and misdemeanors for failure to maintain financial responsibility and no driver's license.

According to the arrest report, officers tried to stop Thomas around 1:40 p.m. at the intersection of North Street and Wettermark Street for traffic violations. Thomas refused to stop and led police on a slow-speed chase to Raguet Street and then to College Street, past Steen Hall at SFA, back to College Street, down Wilson Street and to the backside of dorms and where the road stops on the east side cafeteria.

Thomas then jumped out of his vehicle and ran through the kitchen, cafeteria and through the front side of the cafeteria, according to the report. Police had him cornered there, so he ran back into the cafeteria through the kitchen and back to his car, where police took him into custody, according to the report.

Sgt. Mack McKee added that University Police did a really good job in helping contain Thomas.

According to the report, Thomas was driving with two small children, which is why he received the felony charge.
