Deputy hit by car, fires shots in Walmart parking lot

BCSO receives tip about man wanted for burglary

SAN ANTONIO – A mission to arrest a man wanted for burglary ended with a Bexar County Sheriff's Deputy being taken to the hospital.

The BSCO Fugitive Apprehension Unit received a tip that a suspect wanted for burglary of a habitation would be at the Walmart at Loop 410 and Rigsby around 2:45 p.m. Friday.

Deputies approached the man as he was getting out of a car. That's when the man resisted arrest, prompting deputies to tase the man, according to BCSO spokeswoman Roseanne Hughes.

The burglary suspect was taken into custody, as was another person.

The female driver of the car he was riding in, Amanda Jakob, is accused of hitting a deputy with the car and then driving off.

Hughes says as Jakob was driving toward the deputy, the deputy fired shots at the car, shattering a window.

It's unclear whether anyone in the car was injured, said Hughes.

Officers later located and arrested Jakob, who is expected to be charged with aggravated assault of a public servant.

Sheriff's officials have not yet identified the man arrested for burglary.
