Law enforcement officials stopped Willard White and Ayanna Holmes in New Orleans when they took off and almost ran over an officer who wounded them with gunfire.

White and Holmes drove themselves to a hospital where police arrested them on warrants for aggravated assault and battery of a Texas Department of Public Safety trooper, according to a U.S. Marshal.

DPS Sergeant Cindy Barkley said deputies attempted to stop White and Holmes in Dumas on September 1, but the pair escaped.
