Man wanted after injuring two officers in chase


The search is on for a man who has eluded police again and again and sent two Texas Game Warden officers to the hospital.

The chase began late Friday night, in Limestone County after two Texas Game Wardens caught 45 year-old Teddy Davenport burglarizing a home on Cottonwood Creek Road, just outside of Mart city limits.

According to police, when they tried to pull him over he sped off down Farm to Market Road 342.

Police say during the pursuit, Davenport and a passenger were shinning bright lights at the officers and even shot at them with a riffle causing them to crash. One officer suffered minor injuries and the other was taken to the hospital to undergo surgery for a dislocated hip.

The Texas Game Wardens, U.S. Marshal's Office, Mart Police and McLennan County and Limestone County Sheriff's Offices are working together to find Davenport.

Davenport was given six years probation for a similar incident in may. He was arrested after leading mart police on a chase that left an officer injured. Investigators later found that davenport has a history of evading police.

Investigators are asking the public to call local authorities if they spot him but warn not to approach him, because he's considered armed and dangerous.
