“Missing” Fort Hood soldier was actually in jail in Louisiana

A Fort Hood Soldier was reported to have gone missing- only to turn up in police custody in another state after he attempted to elude the police.

Texas-based Soldier PFC Edward Casteel was arrested in Lincoln Parish, Louisiana, a day prior to the Army reporting him missing.

Casteel had reportedly been going 92 in a 70 MPH zone, and refused to pull over when the officer repeatedly attempted to do so.

The chase continued at a steady pace until a Ruston Police vehicle managed to pull in front of Casteel, effectively bringing the pursuit to an end.

The Lincoln Parish deputy pursuing Casteel dismounted from his vehicle and ordered the Soldier out at gunpoint.

According to KCENTV, Casteel was arrested and charged with Speeding and Resisting Arrest by Flight. He’s being held in the Lincoln Parish Detention Center under a $3,500 bond.

Casteel was reported missing on October 7, and it is unknown why law enforcement agencies did not notify Fort Hood officials.
