Young Dallas man takes Sheriff’s deputies on 30-mile overnight chase

ROYSE CITY – A young Dallas man led Rockwall County Sheriff’s deputies, Dallas County Sheriff’s deputies and Dallas police on a 30-mile, late-night car chase on I-30 early Monday morning, beginning in Royse City and ending in Downtown Dallas.

Jessie Eduardo Olivares, 19, refused to stop when a Sheriff’s Deputy attempted to pull him over at about 1 am in Royse City for a traffic violation.

A chase ensued with officers from all three departments joining the mix, including a Dallas Police helicopter hovering above.

As the chase entered the I-30 canyon in downtown Dallas, officers used spikes to blow out the vehicle’s tires. Officers said the car quickly ground to a stop at the I-30/Interstate 35E split.

Olivares reportedly struggled with police when he was arrested. An ambulance was called so paramedics could check on his health before he was taken to the Rockwall County jail.

Officers reported finding .4 grams of cocaine on Olivares, who has outstanding warrants in Dallas and Tarrant Counties. He was booked for: evading in a vehicle, possession of a controlled substance, driving under the influence as a minor, criminal mischief, driving without a license and possession of alcohol.
