PCP, Chase and Sheriffs Office K-9

A Liberty County Sheriff’s Deputy, traveling home from an extra job Sunday morning, spotted a vehicle on Highway 90 in Ames. It was being operated in an erratic manner. In addition to being in the wrong lane, the Deputy said the suspect was only going about 5 mph.  According to Liberty County Sheriff Bobby Rader, the off-duty deputy called the SO dispatcher to report the wrong-way driver. When on-duty deputies arrived, they attempted to pull the vehicle over. The driver had other ideas. Deputies chased the vehicle through Ames and Liberty. During the pursuit, the Driver 39-year-old Alex William Morris forced a patrol sergeant to swerve into the eastbound lane while heading west. Morris swerved back into the eastbound lane but struck a curb that blew out two tires before coming to a stop in a vacant lot just east of Bowie Street in Liberty. Still not ready to surrender the vehicle, deputies sent Departmental K-9 dog Jack to the suspect vehicle, and deployed a taser. The driver Alex Morris reportedly had a clear bottle in his hand. Sheriff Rader said the bottle had approximately 17.5 grams of an illegal drug known as PCP. Mr. Morris was arrested and charged with Evading Arrest/Detention with a Motor Vehicle and Possession of a Controlled Substance. That’s a second-degree Felony. Alex William Morris remains in the Liberty County Jail in lieu of a $30,000 bond.
