Livingston Police Catch Car Thief in Long Police Chase, SCHWAB CITY, April 22, 2014 - At around midnight on April 22, 2015, Officer Adam Williford with the Livingston Police Department attempted to stop a gray 2014 Mercedes Benz E350 on 190 West (in front of Raceway). The driver of the vehicle opted to flee. Officer Williford gave chase as the vehicle turned right onto the US-59 bypass the driver exited the bypass at the south end and came down Pan American Drive with Williford now joined by Sergeant Chad Ward (also with Livingston PD) in pursuit. The chase led to US-146 where the suspect vehicle turned right. The chase became much faster and exceeded 100 miles per hour. The chase entered Liberty County. The driver approached the railroad tracks (near FM-787) probably with the intention of going further into Liberty County, but a passing train forced the driver to make a turn onto an unpaved road. The chase continued as the driver found his way back and turned onto 146 and headed back towards Polk County. As the chase neared FM-2610, Deputy Ricky Conner with the Polk County Sheriff's Office successfully spiked the suspect vehicle's front driver's side tire. The vehicle came to a stop just south of FM-2610. Officers Williford and Ward cuffed and placed 20 year old Jerry Lee Fielder under arrest. Fielder may have been visiting Livingston as he has family that resides in Livingston. Fielder was charged with unauthorized use of a motor vehicle. Also at the scene were Police Chief, Dennis Clifton and Chief Deputy Byron Lyons with the Polk County Sheriff's Office. The vehicle was recovered by a rollback wrecker from LakeView Wrecker and will be stored in Livingston.
