On Friday, June 25th, 2021, at approximately 5:35 hours, Newton County Dispatchers were notified that DPS Trooper Hunt was in pursuit of an individual operating a motorcycle that was about to enter the county on FM 363 and was traveling more than 100 miles per hour.  The motorcycle proceeded on 363 and went through Bleakwood, Bon Wier and turned west on Hwy 190.  He continued to the City of Newton where he laid the motorcycle down just northwest of the Courthouse on Glover Dr.  at Patterson St.  I want to commend Trooper Hunt for bringing this situation to a safe conclusion. Nolan was treated at the scene and booked into Newton County Jail; his bond was set at $50,000.00.    Parks and Wildlife Officer, and I joined the pursuit in Bon Wier, and Newton PD were there when the pursuit ended in Newton.

We are now into the 101 Critical Days of Summer.  I submitted Safety Tips to consider during this time in Newton County News and will add it to our Facebook Page.  We are in the process of forming a NCSO volunteer program.   Because of the geographics of Newton County, we will schedule these meetings in a location to make it easy for citizens to attend.  We will publish more information, location, and dates on our Facebook Page.
