Truck driver in extensive police chase appears in court on multiple charges


The truck driver involved in Houston police chase appeared in court for multiple charges this week. 

The chase occurred over the weekend on November 4th, and stretched 160 miles across the span of the Houston area, from Roman Forest in the northeast to Fort Bend county in the Southwest. Several crashes occurred as a result of the police chase, but no severe injuries were reported. 

According to ABC 13, 51-year-old Christopher Lubowski is being held on $150,000 bond in Montgomery County on charges of possession of meth and evading law enforcement. Lubowski was working for a trucking company out of Michigan at the time of the police chase. By Monday, Lubowski’s boss was reportedly no longer with the company. 

Much of the chase was captured on dash cam. The truck was wobbling all over the road and was driving the wrong way on US-59 near Wesleyan and Buffalo Speedway at one point. Investigators say the rig was likely wobbling because Lubowski was wiggling the steering wheel. 

Once he was stopped, police found 16 grams of meth and a urine kit, believed to be used to pass drug tests, inside of the cab, reported Fox 26.
