Houston Man Guilty of A&M Officer Assault

A Houston man who robbed a Texas A&M student at gunpoint and led authorities on a high-speed chase, faces life behind bars.

Earl Markeith Henderson pleaded guilty Tuesday to assault on a public servant, aggravated assault on a public servant, evading arrest and burglary of a vehicle. He pleaded no contest to aggravated robbery, but was found guilty of all counts.

The punishment phase of his trial starts Wednesday.

Police said in October 2007, Henderson and another man robbed an Aggie at gunpoint, burglarized two vehicles on campus, tried to run over a bicycle officer, then led authorities on a chase that ended in Navasota. That's where his alleged accomplice, Isiah Holden was caught.

Henderson fled on foot and was later captured in Houston.

The case against Holden is still pending.
