BRAZOS COUNTY--A man with three felony warrants for arrest out of Harris County led police on a chase Friday that ended in Brazos County. It started just before one PM. Hearne police were responding to a possible sighting of Nathan Neumann at the Dixie Cafe. Once Neumann saw police, he jumped in his yellow truck and fled down Highway Six reaching speeds up to 95 miles per hour.
He went north on Mumford Road and then a little ways on FM 2818. That's when officials say he ended up hitting the rear quarter panel on a Brazos County Precinct Four vehicle. That was when Neumann's axle broke and the wheel assembly semi came apart. The Constable of the patrol car was shook up a little bit but is ok.
"It's just a scary situation," Constable public information officer Glenda Smith said. "You just have to be ready for it. But we're glad that everything turned out the way it did, and we're glad that he's okay."
Following the crash, Neumann threatened to kill himself with a lock-blade knife. After negotiations, authorities made the arrest. He was taken to Saint Joseph's by Hearne police for a psych evaluation.
Neumann was wanted out of Harris County for assault of bodily injury of a family member, assault for choking a family member and burglary of a personal habitation.
