Standoff In Slaton TX After 150 Mile Police Chase

A man is currently surrounded by police after he led them on a high-speed pursuit from Scurry County, near Abilene, all the way to Slaton.

According to KCBD-TV, officers attempted to stop the Ford pickup after he was pulled-over for a traffic violation, Brian Witt, Department of Public Safety Lieutenant, said.

The pursuit started at approximately 8:57 p.m., officers followed the man all through Garza and Scurry until it made a stop in Slaton, presumably because the man ran out of gas.

Officers were one scene and reported the man had a revolver in his hand while still inside of the vehicle.

"We did determine that the pickup is stolen, and there's one occupant," Witt said. "And we do believe at this time that occupant is armed, so parts of U.S. 84 have been diverted."
