B…b…but they just want to come here to escape the violence in Mexico…
A 16-year-old illegal immigrant was arrested Saturday (August 1) after he allegedly set fire to a Precinct 4 deputy constable’s patrol car at the Precinct 4 building in Manvel.
While on scene, Deputies saw a maroon Ford F150 four-door truck pull into the parking lot and they reportedly noticed that the suspect was acting suspicious.
The teenager then allegedly pointed a .22 caliber rifle from his car window as a deputy was approaching. The deputy pulled his weapon and retreated to his patrol vehicle. The suspect fled the scene and a pursuit began.
The pursuit lasted about 35 minutes, leaving Brazoria County, going into Ft. Bend County, and back to Brazoria County, where it ended at FM 518 and Kingsley Dr. in Pearland.
During the pursuit, the suspect swerved at two motorcycle officers who were escorting a funeral. One officer’s motorcycle was struck, but no officers were injured.
The suspect lost control of his vehicle and again pulled the rifle on the deputies. Deputies were able to take the suspect into custody without firing any weapons.
The chase ended in a one-vehicle crash on FM 518 at Kingsley Dr. in Pearland, where the suspect was taken into custody.
According to Brazoria County Sheriff’s Office Investigator Paige Newsom, the suspect said that he was tired of his people getting shot by police and nothing happening, so he came to shoot them.
He also reportedly said that the incident was about a war against the government because Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is always sending Mexicans back to Mexico for no reason, and they are the ones here in America doing all the work.
The suspect was charged with Aggravated Assault on a Public Service with a deadly weapon, Possession of a controlled substance, Evading arrest with a vehicle, and Arson, which are all felonies.
The suspect’s name has not been released due to his minor status.
