Wild Chase That Started in Goodrich Ends in North Polk County, CORRIGAN, September 26, 2015 - At approximately 1:30 am on September 26, 2015, Corporal Ramey Bass with the Texas Highway Patrol, was on patrol on US-59 in Goodrich when a black Ford Mustang blew by him doing over 100 mph. Corporal Bass attempted to initiate a traffic stop, but the driver opted to evade and pursuit was established. Bass radioed to dispatch to alert Livingston PD that the pursuit was headed their way. The chase exceeded 140 mph and blew through Livingston quickly. Sergeant Darrell Newman with Livingston PD joined in the pursuit. Bass radioed to dispatch that the driver was weaving during the chase. The chase went all the way to downtown Corrigan where the suspect entered a curve too fast and crashed through the white picket fence at Corrigan City Hall, drove across the lawn, crashed through the other side of the fence, went through two parking lots, then crashed through a chain link fence and entered the back yard of someone's residence where the vehicle finally stopped because it was disabled. By now, Corporal Bass, Deputies Billy Duke and Cody Hardy with the Polk County Sheriff's Office, Sergeant Darrell Newman with Livingston PD, Officers Teddy Sims, Celistino Molina, and Corporal Erik Bolton, with Corrigan PD, and two additional Troopers from Angelina County were all at the scene. Officer Teddy Sims opened the suspect's door (suspect identified as William Michael Munn, 28, of Lake Jackson) and detained him. Officer Sims took Munn to the ground and cuffed him. An ambulance was summoned from Americare Ambulance Service to examine Munn. Munn was not physically hurt. Munn was however, acting bizarre and appeared to be on some kind of drugs. Deputy Billy Duke took Munn into custody and transported him to CHI Livingston Memorial Hospital for a mandatory blood withdrawal, then to Polk County Jail where Munn was booked in and is facing a list of charges. Munn's vehicle was recovered by Riley Wrecker Service and will be stored in Corrigan.
