Posted: Updated:
FROM THE CORPUS CHRISTI POLICE DEPARTMENT -

Occurred: 5/18/2012   00:20      2100 Nodding Pines      Evading Arrest       

Two CCPD Officers patrolling the 6000 block of Holly Road observed a tan colored Infiniti in front of them commit several traffic violations before turning onto the 2100 block of Nodding Pines.  When officers attempted to stop the car, the driver continued on and turned into a small apartment complex, speeding up in the parking lot and striking a silver BMW.  The Infiniti continued to evade officers, speeding toward the rear of the complex, where the driver jumped from the vehicle while it was still in motion.  The car then crashed into the rear of a parked pickup truck, while the driver fled on foot.  Officers pursed the man, who jumped a fence and continued to run down the 6000 block of Wilderock and into a second housing complex.  Officers finally apprehended the man after he unsuccessfully attempted to force his way into one of the townhomes.  Thomas Stevenson, 28, was arrested for Evading Arrest in a vehicle and on foot.  Officers later discovered that he had one outstanding warrant for criminal mischief from Nueces County, and two outstanding warrants from Travis County for possession and delivery of a controlled substance.  He was booked at the City Detention Center after being medically evaluated due to the traffic crash.
