The two suspects charged with a robbery and high-speed chase have been identified as Maxwell Brooks McCall, 21, of Dallas and Ronald Charles Cooper, 20, also of Dallas, according to a release from Corsicana Police Chief Randy Bratton.

The two men were arrested Saturday night by local police and sheriff’s deputies. Since then, McCall has been charged with theft of $1,500 to $20,000 and felony evading arrest. Cooper was charged with the same theft charge and a misdemeanor evading arrest charge, since he was the passenger in the car.

The two are believed to be the two men who robbed the Goodlow Beer and Wine store around 9:10 p.m. Saturday in Goodlow. An off-duty deputy constable was in the area and began the pursuit and was soon joined by officers from the Navarro County Sheriff’s Office and Corsicana Police Department.

Near the intersection of I-45 and Texas Highway 31, the car pulled off into the parking lot of the Phillips 66 store. The driver, Maxwell, got out of the car, but then got back into the car and sped off, circling around the hotels in the area before getting onto southbound I-45.

He was estimated to be going in excess of 100 miles per hour before crashing the Infiniti into the median. The driver fled on foot, only be apprehended by Corporal Scott DeChaume and Recruit Officer Daniel Herrera. The passenger in the car also attempted to flee, but was stopped by Sheriff’s deputy Casey Gaston and Corsicana Police Officer Dan Putman.

The second suspect complained of a hurt elbow and was transported to Navarro Regional Hospital and then Parkland Hospital for treatment.

Two passing cars were damaged by flying debris when the suspects’ car crashed, but there were no injuries as a result, according to Corsicana Police Officer Dan Putman, who did the follow-up.
