Tyler, TEXAS (KETK) — Update (Thursday, November 1): KETK has confirmed that the kidnapped child, Lucas Calvert, 4, has been found safe, and the father, James Calvert, 41, has been arrested in West Monroe, Louisiana.
When police tried to pull the car over, James Calvert took off and led police on high speed car chase. It ended shortly when Calvert turned down a road with no outlet and crashed.
Tyler Police tell KETK, when Louisiana police approached Calvert's car they noticed he had a pistol in his lap and a pistol in the back seat.
He would not let officers into the crashed vehicle, so they were forced to break out the window to make their arrest.
Calvert's son was in backseat strapped into a child seat and unharmed by the crash, or his father.
He is still in a Louisiana jail, but he will be back in Tyler behind bars on a 2 million dollar bond shortly, according to police.
His charges in Texas are capital murder, and kidnapping, and he now faces charges in Louisiana for evading arrest.
