TOMBALL, Texas – Troopers and deputies were in a standoff with a suspect who allegedly refused to pull over for a traffic stop early Thursday.
According to sheriff’s deputies, the incident began when a DPS Trooper tried to stop the suspect on Spring-Stuebner near Gosling.
The man fled into a new subdivision off FM 2978 and managed to put his vehicle in the garage of a model home.
The suspect exchanged gunfire with deputies, and he suffered minor wounds, leading to a standoff through much of the morning.
Authorities say initially the man was very uncooperative, telling them that he didn't want to go back to jail.
The suspect was taken into custody before 5 a.m. without further incident. Law enforcement used a non-lethal bean bag round to subdue the suspect after he was hit in the torso.
