Cedric Dewayne Love Sr., 41, of Bryan led troopers on a chase ending with Love being tasered and arrested.

According to Department of Public Safety Trooper Joe Morgan, Love was observed traveling in excess speed on Texas State Highway 6 Southbound near the Grimes County/ Brazos County line, Tuesday, June 4, at approximately 3:30 p.m.

Morgan said the initial traffic stop was for failure to control speed and failure to maintain a safe distance with the vehicle in front of him.

Morgan stated Love continued driving southbound ignoring the troopers attempt for a traffic stop. Love was seen disposing of unknown objects out of the window.

Navasota Police Department and Grimes County Sheriff’s deputies joined in the pursuit that eventually ended in front of the residence of Love’s father.

Love refused to comply to orders from the officers and was eventually shot with a stun gun. The subject admitted to ingesting an unspecified number of narcotics and was transported to CHI Grimes St. Joseph Hospital in Navasota for treatment.
