TYLER (TYLER MORNING TELEGRAPH) - Two motorcyclists who thought they would leave a Smith County Sheriff's deputy behind early Sunday morning and escape any consequences for excessive speed landed in the Smith County Jail charged with felonies.

Lt. Bill Goecking of the Smith County Sheriff's Office said deputy Steve Henry was patrolling an area in the 12600 block of Texas Highway 31 west shortly before 2 a.m. when two motorcycles went by him at a high rate of speed.

"(Henry) turned around on them and they did the old look over the shoulder and saw the flashing lights and tried to evade him. They actually accelerated," he said.

Goecking said Henry radioed for backup in the chase and was soon joined by additional units.

"He was able to follow them and saw them pull up to a home in the 1300 block of Indian Creek where he found one of the men in the front yard. While he was talking to that motorcyclist, he heard a noise around the back and other deputies found the other guy hiding in the back of the house," he said.

Goecking said the two men were arrested for felony evading with a vehicle and taken to the jail where they were booked in.

He said Khristopher Dennis, 36, of Tyler, was charged with evading and released on a $5,000 bond.

Bryan Keith Holland, 25, of Frankston was charged with evading and was also arrested on several outstanding warrants for no insurance, driving without a license and failure to appear in court.

Records show Holland was released Sunday on a $2,000 bond and $969 in fines.
