2-23-06- 17-year old Chance Snider was in the back of the patrol car with the doors closed, but managed to escape as the officer interviewed two other people.
It started around 2:00 a.m. when an officer pulled over a suspicious vehicle with three people inside with a stolen license plate. Snider gave a false identity, and then police realized the local juvenile detention center had a warrant out for him. Sherman detectives arrested Snider at a Denison Motel later on Thursday.
He will likely face charges of auto theft connected to his escape.
