Deputies pursued the suspect. The suspect driver smashed into a vehicle that had been parked on Mcnutt Street. The suspect driver fled on foot and entered a house and ran through yards and jumped fences in the area.

Authorities found the suspect and arrested him on suspicion of vehicle theft, evading and resisting arrest, and assault with a deadly weapon on a peace officer. The suspect was identified as Jose Ruiz, 28 years old.
