Fir Chase

Posted on 27th June 2011 at 08:03

Lawrence Rupert Smith, 46, of Longview is under arrest after a short car and foot chase that took place last night in downtown Longview. This got start just after 11 pm last night, in the area of 12th and Fir. Longview Police tried to make a traffic stop, but the driver tried to take off instead. The man crashed into a pole, then ran off. Officers say that he took off so fast, that he left his shoes behind. Additional officers converged on the area, and it took just a few minutes to find Smith hiding on a roof in the area of 11th and Fir. He’s currently being held on a charge of obstructing an officer, with bail set at $500. Additional charges are possible.
