San Marcos police responded to a stalking incident Monday, in which officers chased a suspect from San Marcos to New Braunfels, before the suspect crashed and was ejected from his car.
A woman called the police just after 9:30 a.m. when 27-year-old Macleen William Trainor was stalking her daughter while at Bonham Pre-Kindergarten School.
A San Marcos police officer arrived at the school and observed Trainor in his car. Trainor had texted the woman a picture of a gun and said he would use it on himself because he wouldn’t “go back to jail.”
The officer made contact with Trainor and ordered him out of the vehicle. Trainor refused, then fled in a truck down Highway 123 and then to FM 1101, driving up to 100 miles per hour.
The pursuit ended when Trainor crashed into two vehicles. The one vehicle hosted three children and a 52-year-old woman. The other was driven by a 71-year-old man. The children were taken to a nearby hospital with non life-threatening injuries.
While the SMPD continues to investigate the stalking incident that led up to the pursuit, the New Braunfels Police Department are investigating the collision.
Trainor is charged with stalking and four counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. He is remains in at University Hospital in San Antonio in critical condition.
