SAN ANTONIO – A man who was wanted for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon led Bexar County Sheriff’s Office deputies on a short chase Monday morning, authorities said.
A BCSO report states that deputies were conducting surveillance on the suspect, later identified as Brandon Jamal Miller, who was a wanted fugitive.
A marked BCSO unit attempted to pull over Miller in a traffic stop but a pursuit began, BCSO said. During the chase, a gun was thrown out of the window of Miller’s vehicle, according to BCSO.
At some point, Miller crashed his vehicle into a fire hydrant near Longing Trail and Corona Ride in a neighborhood on the Northeast Side.
He was taken into custody at that time. In addition to his felony warrant for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, he was charged with evading arrest, BCSO said.
No injuries were reported.
