Intoxicated Driver Evades in Onalaska, High Speed Chase Ensues, Ends in Livingston, LIVINGSTON, December 18, 2010 - At approximately 12:35 am on December 18, 2010 Officer Jacob Chapman with the Onalaska Police Department observed a white 1999 Mercury Sable east-bound on US-190 and driven by Bradley Jones, 24. According to Officer Chapman, he spotted the vehicle driving erratically and attempted to pull Jones over but Jones chose to evade. A high speed chase ensued and according to Chapman, reached speeds of over 100 miles per hour. Chapman radioed for assistance. The chase proceeded east on 190. Jones made a right on FM-3126 and continued all the way to FM-2457 and back to 190 and turned east toward Livingston. The chase continued and now Livingston Police had joined in. Jones continued through downtown Livingston, over Business 59 and finally crashed just before reaching the intersection of US-146. Jones' vehicle left 190 to the left, knocked over some steel railing, 2 steel poles, and a fire hydrant. Americare Ambulance Service was dispatched to the scene. Bradley Jones insisted that he was physically okay, and signed a form affirming that he did not need medical attention. Jones was then placed under arrest by Onalaska Police and loaded into a police car. Minutes later, Jones suddenly changed his mind and decided that he needed medical attention so he was pulled from the vehicle, treated by EMS Personnel and transported to Livingston Memorial Hospital by Ambulance. So far, Jones will likely be charged with driving while intoxicated, evasion, and there was a warrant for Jones' arrest out of Liberty County. Jones' vehicle was recovered by Fawbush Wrecker Service and will be stored in Goodrich. The scene was cleared by 1:45 am.
