Brownwood drug suspect sentenced to 6 years in prison for car chase

Jesse Michael Coppic

A Brownwood man who led multiple Brown County law enforcement agencies on a vehicle chase before crashing into a trailer home was sentenced to six years in prison.

Jesse Michael Coppic, 25, of Brownwood, plead guilty on Monday to evading arrest, unauthorized use of a vehicle and money laundering, according to the 35th Judicial District Court.

Coppic reached a plea deal with Brown County prosecutors in order avoid a court trial.

As part of his plea, Coppic was sentenced to serve six years in prison for evading arrest and 15 months in a state jail for the other two charges.

Back in February, Coppic led 10 law enforcement vehicles from Brown County on a vehicle pursuit that lasted for approximately 35 minutes.

Coppic eventually lost control of his pickup truck when Texas Department of Public Safety troopers deployed spike stripes and he crashed into someone's trailer home in Zephyr.

Coppic was arrested at the scene of the wreck.
