This prompted deputies to back off and give him commands. The tense situation lasted around a half-hour before the suspect decided to take off – sparking a chase.
Eventually, after possibly clipping some uninvolved vehicles during the chase, deputies say the suspect got out and ran in the Antelope neighborhood near Arutas and Bainbridge drives. The suspect reportedly hopped some fences and deputies made a perimeter.
Just after 6 a.m., deputies took the suspect into custody. No law enforcement officers were injured in the incident, the sheriff’s office says.
