COLBERT, OK - Two men are in the Bryan County Jail facing a list of charges after a high speed pursuit over the weekend through three counties in two states.

Princeton Police Chief James Waters says 25-year-old Gabriel Castro, 18-year-old Raymundo Miranda, and another man were leaving a party around 4:30 Sunday morning and started racing another car. Water says it quickly turned into a road rage incident.

Castro and Miranda got out of their car and fired shots into the air while their friend got into another victim's vehicle and drove off.

That man was apprehended a short time later in McKinney, but Castro and Miranda led officers on a chase up U.S. Highway 75 that reached speeds of 110 miles per hour. Spike strips were used to stop their vehicle in Colbert, Oklahoma, but the two then fled on foot before they were arrested at approximately 5:40 a.m.

Multiple law enforcement agencies helped Princeton Police in the pursuit, including the Collin County Sheriff's Department, the Bryan County Sheriff's Office, and the Colbert Police Department.

Chief Waters says the two men face nine counts of aggravated robbery, one count of theft, and one count of aggravated assault.
