Sheriff: Bullard man leads deputies on chase, caught with meth


The Henderson County Sheriff’s Office arrested a man who reportedly led law enforcement on a chase Wednesday and was later allegedly found with methamphetamines in his possession.

Deputies arrested Robert Chapman, 34, of Bullard, and charged him with manufacture and delivery of a controlled substance, evading arrest with a vehicle and resisting arrest and resisting search or transport, according to the Henderson County Sheriff’s Office.

The pursuit began when Chapman allegedly failed to stop at a stop sign in the Sunrise Shores Subdivision. A deputy tried to pull the SUV over, but the driver took off and eventually hopped out the vehicle in someone’s yard. He was caught on foot and cuffed.

The arresting deputy reported they found meth on a “substantial” amount of meth on the suspect. He also had three outstanding felony warrants from Smith County. 

Chapman is being held on bonds totaling $211,000.
