Sutter County sheriff’s deputies negotiated with the McCray, who remained uncooperative. Tear gas was deployed into McCray’s vehicle, which led him to exit and take on a fighting stance.

A K9 was then deployed and helped get the suspect into custody a little before 1 p.m. It turned out that the suspect didn’t have a bomb, a child, or a gun.

McCray was taken to the hospital to be treated for a K-9 bite and was later booked into the Yuba County Jail, where he faces charges of felony evading, auto theft, parole violation and driving on a suspended license.
