Judge orders mental evaluation for man who led police on high-speed chase
HOUSTON (KTRK) -- A judge ordered a mental evaluation for the man accused of leading police on a high speed chase last month.
Oscar Brown appeared in court Wednesday on two counts of aggravated assault of a police officer, as well as car theft. Investigators say he and his female passenger sped through the Third Ward before crashing head on into a police cruiser on December 26.
He bailed out of the pickup truck and was brought down by a police dog.
Brown's female passenger, Kimberly King, had been wanted on two charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. She was taken into custody without incident after the chase.
