Sherman Police are seeking additional charges against the man who authorities said intentionally crashed his car into a vehicle occupied by three Grayson County Sheriff’s Office deputies Wednesday evening.
The sheriff’s office identified the driver as Anthony Quinn Blair of Denison, and he was booked into the Grayson County Jail. Sheriff’s Office Lt. Sarah Bigham said via email that his total bond is approximately $7,000, but he is currently being held on a federal hold. Blair was arrested on his outstanding warrants, but Sherman police said they are seeking additional charges after the events of Wednesday evening.
A U.S. Marshal-led task force assisted by Texas Department of Public Safety personnel and the sheriff’s office attempted to arrest Blair in the 600 block of Kentucky Street in Sherman. In the process of apprehending him, Blair fled in a vehicle. At about 5 p.m., the dark Lincoln sedan driven by Blair collided with a silver SUV containing three deputies on Throckmorton Street.
After the collision, which authorities said was intentional, Blair fled on foot. He was apprehended after a short chase, police said Wednesday.
The three deputies were transported to the Texoma Medical Center for minor injuries, and Bigham said Thursday they were released from the hospital.
Bigham said Blair had multiple outstanding warrants, which included a parole warrant, four misdemeanor charges and a warrant for evading arrest in a vehicle. Sherman Police Sgt. D.M. Hampton said there will be additional charges brought against Blair from the incident, possibly an aggravated assault on a peace officer charge, but currently he’s in custody on the previous warrants. Hampton said a firearm and narcotics were found in the vehicle, and he could be facing new federal charges.
