Simien & Simien Report Driver Endangers Own Children Leading Police on Car Chase
High-Speed Chase Ensues as Houma Driver Flees Traffic Stop
An officer with the Houma police noticed a vehicle parked in the area of Daniel Turner Trailer Court and East Street Tuesday at around 10 p.m., and attempted to conduct a traffic stop. At that time the driver Jeremy Sims, 30, of Thibodaux, sped off through subdivisions reaching speeds exceeding 70 mph at some points.
Sims’ vehicle came to a stop only after hitting a curb in the area of Main and Grand Caillou Road, and when officers apprehended Sims only then did they realize his two small children— a son age 5 and a daughter age 2— had been riding in the back seat throughout the chase.
Passenger Darreka Boykins was arrested on child desertion charges in addition to outstanding traffic and drug warrants, while Sims was arrested on charges of obstruction of justice, possession of a stolen firearm, contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile, and other related charges.
