A retired Texas Department of Public Safety sergeant from Orange is facing charges of evading arrest. KJAS radio in Jasper reports 53-year-old Greg Evans has been in a hospital recovering from injures after his motorcycle crashed during a chase.
The pursuit began after 9 p.m. Thursday, October 7, in north Jasper County. KJAS said deputies and a DPS trooper chased the motorcycle when it would not stop. As the 2020 Kawasaki motorcycle went down Highway 96, the rear tire blew out, causing it to wreck.
Evading arrest with a vehicle is a third degree felony under the Texas Penal Code.
