Texarkana police arrest man for vehicle theft, evading, possession

    Texarkana police have arrested a man in connection with a vehicle theft.

    25-year-old Alphonso Taylor was observed driving a stolen GMC Sierra by an officer yesterday on West 4th Street. 

    When the officer attempted a traffic stop, Taylor took off across Lake Drive at a high rate of speed. 

    Once the truck had traveled about two blocks, Taylor flipped it into a ditch near West 5th and Bowie Streets. 

    Taylor crawled out of the driver’s side window and attempted to escape on foot. 

    After jumping two fences, Taylor was pepper sprayed by officers and apprehended. 

    He was booked into Bi-State Jail on charges of unauthorized use of a vehicle, evading arrest, and possession of marijuana. 

    His bond is set at $72,000.
