April 9, 1995

DALLAS (AP) _ A man led police on a 100-mile slow-speed chase for two hours, taunting officers and sticking out his tongue at them along the way.

Bryan Peek, 20, of Grand Prairie was caught after a squad car rammed his pickup truck, police said.

Peek was charged Sunday with fleeing police and aggravated assault on two officers. At one point, Peek rammed a squad car that tried to corner him in a parking lot, police said. Bond was set at $30,500.

``He was having a good time. He was sticking out his tongue and taunting the officers. And it turned out he was not drunk,″ said Grand Prairie police Officer Steve Courson.

The chase began early Saturday after two officers saw Peek driving erratically, police said.

The chase led officers through Grand Prairie, Arlington, Irving and Dallas. Peek never broke the speed limit but ran numerous red lights, police said.
