Kilgore Police Arrested Tyler Man after Violent Foot Chase

Posted/updated on: December 11, 2012 at 12:56 pm

KILGORE A Tyler man accused of injuring a child has been taken into custody after leading authorities on a violent foot chase through Kilgore. According to KETK, Mikeal Reeves, 22, Tyler, who is wanted in Wood County for felony injury to a child, was reportedly working at a new school construction site at Baughman Road and U.S. Highway 259 South.

Responding officers spotted Reeves working on the rooftop and ordered him to come down. Instead, the fugitive ducked out of sight and was seen running from the area to a nearby neighborhood. Police immediately began chasing Reeves through several yards, a creek bed and a culvert. He then forced his way into the home on the 2300 block of Redbud Street and attacked a house keeper, stealing their cellphone.

Authorities found Reeves in a back bedroom and arrested him after a short struggle. He was taken to the Kilgore Jail last Friday and charged with felony burglary of habitation, evading arrest, and injury to a child via Wood County. His bonds total $320,000.
