Chase, Crashes, and Shot Fired on Northeast Side

Plenty of early morning drama in Northeast Bexar County early Friday Morning–which included a chase, several crashes–and a deputy firing a shot.

It all began at around 2:30 AM near Montgomery Elementary School–where a deputy spotted a reckless driver, and tried to pull him over.

“The driver though sped away. In the process of speeding away, he crashed in to another sheriff’s deputy patrol car–and several other vehicles in the neighborhood” James Keith with the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office told KTSA News.

Eventually, the driver would crash through a fence at the school.

“At that time, the driver jumped out of his car. The deputy thought he had a gun in his hand. The deputy pulled his gun and fired a shot” Keith said.

That driver was finally arrested by deputies a short time later. He now faces a number of charges.

“Fortunately, no one was injured throughout this ordeal” Keith said, adding “We do believe the driver was under the influence of drugs, and was in possession of drugs.”
