DPS: Soldier flees trooper going 200 MPH, while reportedly carrying gun

COPPERAS COVE - A Fort Hood soldier was arrested Sunday afternoon after leading troopers from the Texas Department of Public Safety on a high speed motorcycle chase through two counties.

The chase began around 3:45 p.m. when a DPS Trooper attempted to stop Shaquille Windsor, 22, for speeding on U.S. Highway 190 Westbound near W.S. Young Drive in Killeen.

Troopers said Windsor drove off at speeds exceeding 200 miles per hour, eventually exiting off U.S. 190 onto Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive in Copperas Cove, where he crashed. Windsor was not hurt, and troopers said he abandoned the motorcycle and fled on foot into a nearby neighborhood, where he was quickly caught and transported to the Coryell County Jail.

Windsor was charged with evading in a vehicle and unlawful possession of a weapon. A pistol was taken from him when he was apprehended, troopers said.

A DPS trooper identified Windsor as a soldier at Fort Hood.
