ANGELINA COUNTY, TX (KTRE) -

Texas Department of Public Safety troopers arrested 43-year-old Huntington man after he ran from an attempted traffic stop and led officers on a high-speed chase that involved speeds of up to 100 mph.

Craig James Hebert is still being held in the Angelina County on a third-degree felony charge of evading arrest or detention with a vehicle, a Class A misdemeanor charge of possession of a dangerous drug, a Class B misdemeanor charge of driving while intoxicated, and five capias pro fine warrants. Collectively, his bail has been set at $16,428.

According to a press release, DPS troopers attempted to make a traffic stop on a Buick that Hebert was driving east on State Highway 103 East at approximately 9:45 p.m. Saturday. Hebert allegedly fled and led law enforcement on a high-speed chase that went through Angelina County, Nacogdoches County, and San Augustine County. 

During the pursuit, Hebert allegedly reached speeds of up to 100 mph in an attempt to get away from law enforcement. The press release said Hebert also passed motorists in dangerous parts of SH 103.

Eventually Hebert was stopped in San Augustine County and taken into custody. A search of Hebert's vehicle revealed that he was in possession of dangerous drugs.

After Hebert was taken to a Lufkin hospital, where a blood sample was obtained, he was transported to the Angelina County Jail.
