Lengthy Chase that Started in Livingston, Ends in Humble, HUMBLE, January 6, 2014 - At approximately 8:15 pm on January 5, 2014, Officer Jason Thomas with the Livingston Police Department attempted a traffic stop. The car, a black Toyota sedan, had an expired inspection sticker (there were also reports that the driver may have been involved in attempted car theft at Livingston Walmart). When Officer Thomas attempted the traffic stop, the driver, Kevin Michael Kilpatrick, 36, of Indian Springs opted to evade north on US-59. Shortly after the chase started (less than 2 miles), Kilpatrick pulled into a crossover and headed back south. The chase proceeded down 59 and entered into San Jacinto County. The chase went through Goodrich and entered into San Jacinto County. Soon, Troopers with the Texas Department of Public Safety joined in along with Officers from Cleveland PD, and Liberty County Deputies. The chase continued into Montgomery County. Montgomery County Deputies and State Troopers reportedly spiked Kilpatrick's tires near Community Drive. By now, Roman Forest Police and Patton Village Police were also pursuing Kilpatrick. Kilpatrick exited at FM-1960 in Humble at a slower speed. Houston Police, Harris County Deputies, and Harris County Pct. 4 joined in the pursuit. Kilpatrick cut into the parking lot of Deerbrook Mall, then turned out of the parking lot and back onto 1960 and headed west past Lee Road where he turned around again and headed east. Nearly one mile later, Kilpatrick made another U-turn and headed west towards 59. His vehicle then gave out and police were able to apprehend Kilpatrick. Michael Kilpatrick has been charged with evading arrest in a vehicle. Additionally, there were two warrants (out of Polk County) for Kilpatrick's arrest (disorderly conduct and failure to appear). Officer Jason Thomas stayed with the chase, and ultimately returned to Polk County with Kilpatrick. At time of press, Kilpatrick is being booked in to the Polk County Jail. The chase lasted for nearly 2 hours.
