ANDREWS COUNTY -- Andrews County Sheriffs Office responded to a vehicle pursuit on U.S. Highway 385 south of Andrews on Tuesday afternoon.

Police say the suspect involved in the high-speed chase, 32-year-old Codie Dee Seal was driving a 2011 Volkswagen Jetta at speeds above 120 mph.

Seal was traveling north bound and crossed over to the south bound lanes into oncoming traffic, making south bound traffic swerve to avoid a head-on collision.

Police say Seal's vehicle got stuck and he exited the vehicle and ran on foot before fighting officers.

He was then taken into custody and transported to the Andrews County Jail.

He was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon on a public servant, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, evading arrest with a motor vehicle, evading arrest with previous convictions, and possession of marijuana less than 2 ounces.
