Brownwood man leads deputy through high-speed chase in 3 counties

Dustin Lindley

A Brownwood man is in jail after he led authorities on a multi-county high-speed pursuit that reached speeds in excess of 100 mph and resulted in a deer getting run over.

Dustin Lindley, 38, of Brownwood, came to a stop and was arrested after his vehicle broke down in Brown County, according to a Brown County Sheriff's Office police report.

Shortly before midnight, a Brown County Sheriff's Office deputy tried pulling Lindley over for a failure to signal a lane change, according to the report.

The deputy was informed Lindley had an active warrant for his arrest from dispatch. When he asked Lindley to exit the vehicle and was told about the warrant for his arrest, Lindley took off.

The officer's report stated that the speeds in the car chase reached 110 miles per hour and that the car chase went through Coleman and Callahan counties.

The deputy noted that during the pursuit, Lindley continued driving recklessly despite hitting a deer. His vehicle eventually became "disabled due to mechanical problems" once he entered Brown County.

Inside the vehicle, law enforcement found multiple glass methamphetamine pipes, syringes, digital scales and crystal meth, according to the report.

Lindley remains in jail without a bond for charges of evading arrest and possession of a controlled substance and a parole warrant.
