Congratulations to Tom Stanfield and Kelly Clark. In a felony evading with a vehicle case in 140th District Court this week, the jury opted for the lesser-included charge of fleeing or attempting to elude police officer, a Class B misdemeanor. Check it out in the Texas Transportation Code, section 545.421: “A person commits an offense if the person operates a motor vehicle and wilfully fails or refuses to bring the vehicle to a stop or flees, or attempts to elude, a pursuing police vehicle when given a visual or audible signal to bring the vehicle to a stop.” Brilliant work to get this in the court’s charge. Good job, gladiators!
