Police arrest Louisiana man for evading arrest

A suspect believed to be intoxicated at a local convenience store led Beaumont police officers on a car chase that ended with the man behind bars in a Louisiana jail Dec. 21, Officer Haley Morrow reports. 

According to a news release from Morrow, officers responded to the Speedy Stop at 8391 College At. at close to 1 a.m. in reference to an intoxicated person in the parking lot. When officers arrived, they attempted to make contact with the suspect, who then fled the scene in his vehicle.

The suspect, later identified by police as 41-year-old Tyrone Seaberry of Hammond, Louisiana, evaded officers and crossed multiple jurisdictions crossing the state line into Louisiana, Morrow stated in the release. Multiple law enforcement agencies assisted in pursuing the fleeing driver, including the Louisiana State Police. State troopers were able to deploy spike strips to disable the suspect vehicle. 

Seaberry was arrested and taken to the Calcasieu Parish Jail, Morrow reports. He also has a Jefferson County Warrant for Evading Detention with a Motor Vehicle.

A criminal database search revealed Seaberry recently spent over two months in a Chambers County jail after pleading no contest to charges that he failed to identify himself to officers there.
