A Texas State University football assistant coach who allegedly drove the wrong way down Interstate 35 as he fled from police has been indicted for evading arrest.
Cornerbacks coach Greg Walls was arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated early in the morning of Aug. 3. Suspended with pay, he missed the Bobcat’s fall camp before being reinstated before the start of the season.
Earlier this month, Walls was indicted by a Hays County grand jury on a state jail felony charge of evading arrest and detention.
San Marcos police patrol officer Daniel Castillo told the University Star in a story published in today’s print edition that Walls drove at least three miles the wrong way on the interstate during a chase that started on Wonder World Drive. Castillo said Walls, driving an unregistered, “brand new” 2007 Ford F-150, was rammed by his cruiser through a Pursuit Intervention Technique, or PIT, maneuver before being pinned against the retaining wall.
The pursuit reached speeds of 55 mph, Castillo said. When arrested, Walls was visibly impaired but refused a breathalyzer test, the officer told the newspaper.
Neither prosecutors nor Walls attorney, Billy McNabb, commented, the newspaper stated. Walls faces hearings in February on both charges, court records show.
This story originally said that Walls was placed on unpaid suspension. It was paid.
