T.C.  545.421 Class B Misdemeanor

Case Number: 1604040152
A male driver was arrested by Corpus Christi Police after he was observed driving recklessly through the Moore Plaza Shopping Center.

It all started when an Officer observed the driver of a 2008 Ford Explorer traveling at a high rate of speed south on South Staples Street holding his cell phone to his ear.

The driver of the SUV exited Moore Plaza and turned back onto South Staples Street. Officers followed the SUV until it turned into the parking lot of an apartment complex located in the 5700 block of Saratoga Boulevard and stopped.

The driver, Israel Deleon Jr. (09/22/1981), was arrested for reckless driving.  He was additionally charged with fleeing from police and his SUV was impounded.
