On Thursday, March 20, 2014, around 11:33 p.m., an Orange County Sheriff’s Deputy

patrolling the 9000 block of FM 105 in Orangefield, Orange County, Texas, observed a black

Chevy truck pass another vehicle in a no passing zone and accelerating at a high rate of speed.

The Deputy attempted to stop the truck for the traffic violations, but the truck continued

without stopping in an attempt to elude the Deputy. Speeds reached as high as 85 mph in a

posted 35 mph zone. The driver of the truck pulled into a residence driveway at 10109 FM 105

and came to a stop after it collided into a fence. The driver exited the truck and attempted to

climb over the fence to evade the Deputy on foot. The Deputy ordered the suspect to stop and

the suspect realized he could not climb the damaged fence. The suspect continued his attempt to

get away from the Deputy, however, the Deputy managed to get close enough to the suspect to

deploy a Tazer and bring the suspect into custody.

The suspect was identified as 22 year old white male Levi Gollihare of Orange. He was

detained for Evading Arrest with a vehicle. A small amount of synthetic marijuana and Valium

were located in the vehicle that Gollihare was driving. Gollihare also had an outstanding

warrant, a Motion to Revoke Probation out of the 128th

Gollihare was transported to the Orange County Jail and booked for Evading Arrest-State

Jail Felony, Possession of a Controlled substance-Misdemeanor B, Possession of Synthetic

Marijuana-Misdemeanor B, and the MTRP Warrant. He was arraigned by Justice of the Peace

David Peck around 7:45 a.m. on March 21, 2014. The bond amounts for all offenses totaled

$2,500. The MTRP Warrant had NO Bond. Gollihare remains in custody at the Orange County
