ODESSA - An Odessa man is now behind bars for trying to steal a Mack truck from a service yard.

It all happened around 1 a.m. Wednesday morning.

That's when 23-year-old Alfonzo Mackey was spotted by one of the workers at the site.

But by the time police arrived, he had abandoned it to hide at another yard nearby then he took off in another truck at high speed and nearly hit one of the cops.

Mackey lead cops on a high speed chase for about two miles, at one time driving the truck directly toward Corporal McGilvary.

The officer jumped out of the way and Mackey kept driving.

He finally stopped and was arrested.

He's charged with aggravated assault on a peace officer, evading and unauthorized use of a car.
