WHITESBORO, Texas (KTEN) — A wild pursuit along two Grayson County highways on Wednesday ended with the arrest of wanted felon Nathaniel Rogers of Powell, Texas.

Officials said it all started when a white pickup truck forced a deputy's vehicle off the road on US 377 near Whitesboro.

The driver of the truck — later identified as Rogers — was initially pulled over at the intersection with US 82 on suspicion of driving while intoxicated, but then sped away.

"At one point, the vehicle began traveling in the westbound lane of 82 going east against traffic," sheriff's office spokesperson Capt. Martin Hall said in a written statement. "After a lengthy pursuit, deputies were able to get the vehicle stopped."

Hall said Rogers "threw a firearm" as he started running from the truck, then "became physically combative with deputies" as they took him into custody.

Rogers, 42, was booked on 21 charges, including aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, assault on a police officer, and possession of a controlled substance. He was also the subject of warrants from Dallas County; Garland, Texas; and two counties in Wisconsin.

Bond was set at $284,000.
