A Granger man in a stolen Dodge Challenger tried but failed to elude arrest by the Woodward Police Department Thursday night in rural Woodward.
Talyon Jacob Kinkennon, 23, of Granger was charged with theft-operating motor vehicle without owner’s consent, eluding and interference with official acts-bodily injury.
The chase began about 8:45 p.m. on 130th Street between Bouton and Woodward when the stolen vehicle Kinkennon was driving passed a Woodward Police Department patrol vehicle at more than 100 mph.
In a chase that reached speeds of 130 mph, Kinkennon proceeded northward from 130th Street on Quinlan Avenue in Dallas County and K Avenue in Boone County, with the Woodward officer in hot pursuit.
After traveling about five miles northward, Kinkennon turned eastward on 310th Street in Boone County. Radio traffic indicated the Dodge was apparently disabled just east of L Avenue, and Kinkennon was taken into custody after briefly resisting arrest.
The Woodward First Responders and the Dallas County EMS were paged to examine Kinkennon. The cause and extent of his injuries are unknown.
Kinkennon is held in the Dallas County Jail on a $2,000 cash or surety bond. He is scheduled for a preliminary hearing July 23 in Dallas County District Court.
