Police Capture Armed Suspect In Three-City Pursuit
CEDAR HILL (CBSDFW.COM) – A suspected drunk driver led police on a chase through three cities early Wednesday morning before exiting his vehicle with a handgun and pointing at his head.
Police were eventually able to talk the suspect, 36-year-old Victor Medina, into surrendering without further incident or injury.
The incident began at a Buffalo Wild Wings in Cedar Hill, where store employees say Medina was intoxicated and unwilling to call a taxi.
Medina walked to his car in the parking lot, where a witness observed him removing a handgun from a bag in his passenger seat. The restaurant manager called police, who observed the vehicle traveling southbound on Highway 67.
The officers initiated a traffic stop, but the suspect failed to pull over. Officers pursued the vehicle through Midlothian and into Waxahachie, where Waxahachie Police deployed stop sticks.
The pursuit ended a short time later. Medina exited his vehicle with the handgun and pointed it at his head, according to police.
Officers from Waxahachie, Ellis County, and Texas DPS arrived on scene to assist.
