Man considered 'threat to law enforcement and community' now in police custody

HUTCHINSON COUNTY, TX (KFDA) - A man who officials say is considered to be a threat to law enforcement and the community is now in police custody.

The Hutchinson County Sheriff's Office posted on Facebook today, saying 22-year-old Louie Andrew Sandoval of Borger turned himself in to the Hutchinson County Jail on his felony warrant for evading arrest with a vehicle.

The warrant comes from an incident on August 16, when police say Sandoval and a second man who has not been identified attempted to break into a Federal Park Service Law Enforcement vehicle.

An off duty Hutchinson County Deputy saw the two breaking into the car and attempted to make contact with the men.

Sandoval drove off, and a chase ensued.

Police say he stopped the car and both men got out of the car and ran on foot. The off duty deputy followed Sandoval in his patrol unit.

Officials say Sandoval raised his hands in the direction of the deputy as if he was pointing something in the deputy's direction.

Sandoval was then hit by the patrol vehicle.

He continued to flee, but he has since turned himself in to police.
