TCSO: Sheriff's office vehicle rammed on I-35

SAN MARCOS, TEXAS - A person was arrested Thursday after they allegedly rammed a Travis County Sheriff’s vehicle on Interstate 35 in San Marcos.

The sheriff’s office said two deputies were traveling in a marked Chevy Tahoe to a training class in San Antonio when a suburban passed them “going over 95 mph” around 8:40 a.m. Thursday. The deputies, who were in San Marcos at the time, changed lanes but did not activate their lights or siren. The driver then allegedly braked, forcing the deputies to swerve to avoid crashing. The driver then reportedly got behind the deputies’ unit, “rammed it and continued accelerating to approximately 105 mph, pushing the TCSO unit forward at least 1400 feet,” the sheriff’s office said.

The deputies called 911 after the suburban disengaged and fled. Local law enforcement pursued the driver into Comal County where the driver collided with two vehicles at a red light as it attempted to pass between them.

The driver, who was not identified in the TCSO release, fled the scene and was later arrested at a Comal County residence. They are facing charges of felony evading, felony failure to stop and render aid and resisting arrest.

This story will be updated when the alleged driver's name and booking photo are released by authorities.
