SAN ANTONIO – A sports anchor for the local Univision affiliate was arrested Monday.

Johnathan Solarte, 31, was charged with evading arrest after he refused to stop for a traffic violation, Bexar County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Rosanne Hughes said in a news release.

Solarte was driving a SUV around 1:30 p.m. in the area of West Military Drive and Bobcat Pass when he ignored a stop sign, Hughes said.

Solarte initially stopped and then took off, BCSO officials said.

A deputy, who was in a marked patrol vehicle with his emergency lights and siren on, followed Solarte, but he refused to stop, Hughes said.

Solarte eventually stopped and was arrested.
