A 23-year-old man is in custody after leading police on a two county chase that ended in Bryan Friday afternoon.

Nathan Neumann was wanted for three outstanding warrants in Harris County.

More than a dozen police cars lined the highway off F-M 2818 in Bryan after a two county chase finally came to a stop.

"You'll see officers will come out of the woodwork to help each other," explained Officer Jon Agnew of the Bryan Police Department.

Hearne Police were pursuing Nathan Neumann after he allegedly fled in his car when they tried to stop him at the Dixie Café on Highway 6.

Police were looking for him after they learned he had three outstanding warrants including two charges of aggravated assault of a family member and burglary of a habitation in Harris County.

He's accused of choking a family member in one of those incidents.

"It was pretty dangerous," said Agnew.

The chase reached speeds of up to 95 miles an hour and then Bryan Officer Jon Agnew says Neumann crashed into a Brazos County Constable's car.

"I don't know any of the specifics on the chase. I do understand that there was a collision between one of our local constables and that subject, so it was obviously a pretty dangerous chase," said Agnew.

After the Chevrolet Pickup came to a rest Hearne Police say Neumann threatened to cut himself with a knife and initially refused to get out of the car.

"Eventually he was talked out and is currently under arrest and in custody," Agnew said.

Neumann was taken to Saint Joseph Hospital in Bryan for a psychiatric evaluation.

Police say he'll be heading to the Robertson County Jail.

The Precinct 4 Deputy Constable from Brazos County was taken to the hospital as a precaution after that crash.
