Magnolia Man Charged with Multiple Offenses

A man who led East Texas authorities on a three-county chase is in jail facing multiple charges.

Twenty-four year-old William Joseph Dunbar of Magnolia reportedly stole a car Wednesday in Palestine not long after he'd pulled a gun on someone near Grapeland.

When authorities caught up with him, Dunbar allegedly sped off through Houston, Trinity and Walker counties where state troopers arrested him.

Authorities were able to stop Dunbar's vehicle by shooting out two of his tires and setting out spikes in the road. He's charged with unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, evading arrest and detention in a vehicle, criminal attempt to commit aggravated assault on a peace officer and deadly conduct.
