Officers Successful In Ending Dangerous, High Speed Pursuit

A dangerous, high-speed pursuit that wound through the streets of Sulphur on June 13 was successfully ended in Johnston County after a Murray County deputy forced the vehicle to come to a stop, officials said.

The ordeal began when Sulphur Police Sergeant Jason Conyer attempted to pull over a vehicle on a routine traffic stop near the Sulphur school campus. However, the driver, identified as Ceejay Hawk Lewis, 19, Sulphur, did not stop and accelerated to speeds near 70-miles per hour in 25-mile per hour zone, officials said.

Lewis led officers through Sulphur residential areas and then north of town where he turned around and traveled south of Sulphur, according to a sheriff’s office report.

During the pursuit, officials said numerous oncoming motorists were forced to take evasive action to avoid colliding with the fleeing suspect’s vehicle.
