A Magnolia man faces a multitude of charges, after trying to evade Tomball police officers Dec, 19.
Police have charged Victor Vee Lassetter, 21, of Magnolia, with felony evading and unauthorized use of a vehicle. Additional charges are expected.
At about 4:30 p.m. Officer Tikal tried to pull over a vehicle for an expired inspection sticker. The vehicle immediately fled north on SH 249, crossing into Montgomery County. Police allege that Lassetter was driving.
As Lassetter approached heavy traffic at the intersection of Decker Prairie Road and 249, police said that he rammed a stopped vehicle and pushed it through the intersection, ripping the passenger side door off of the Nissan he was driving.
"He pushed the vehicle out of his way like a bulldozer," said Cpl. Brandon Patin of the Tomball Police Department.
Lassetter then sped westbound on Decker Prairie Road. As he neared an RV park, he stopped the vehicle and continued to flee on foot towards the park.
Tomball officers called in assistance from the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office and Montgomery County Pct. 5 deputies, as well as a helicopter from the Harris County Sheriff's Office.
As Tomball officers set up a perimeter, Montgomery County deputy sheriffs and deputy constables entered one of the RV's. That's where they found Lassetter in the shower attempting to wash blue dye from his hair.
He was taken into custody and turned over to Tomball police.
Lassetter was found to have a warrant for a parole violation. He was found guilty for burglaries that occurred in 2009 and 2010 and was currently on parole.
He is currently in the Harris County Jail on a total bond of $25,000.
