Mugshot from a previous arrest - Dallas County Jail

DALLAS, Texas — A driver who led police on a high-speed chase Monday morning was taken into custody then hospitalized after the police car he was being transported in was involved in a minor crash.

Sources with NBCDFW say 35-year-old Billy Ray Perkins led Dallas County Sheriff’s Deputies on an erratic chase through Southern Dallas for approximately 45 minutes in a stolen red Mercedes sedan.







According to the Sheriff’s Department, Perkins crossed over medians, drove at varying speeds, went off-road to change directions, and drove into oncoming traffic over the course of the chase.

Perkins could also be seen gesturing out the vehicle windows and sticking his head out of the sunroof to taunt police while driving.







NBCDFW says Perkins stopped the car and exited the vehicle, attempting to flee officers on foot at approximately 11:45 a.m.

He was soon apprehended by police and taken into custody near the intersection of Corrigan Avenue and Ledbetter Drive.







As Perkins was being transported to the Dallas County Jail, the police car he was inside was involved in a minor crash within 20 feet of the scene, according to NBCDFW.

Perkins was taken to a nearby hospital via ambulance.
