On Tuesday, November 5, 2019 at 2:38 a.m. deputies responded to the Holiday Inn for a report of a suspicious vehicle in the parking lot of the hotel. Deputies arrived and made contact with two occupants inside the car. When the driver, later identified as Travis Brown, was asked to step out of the car, he started the car and accelerated through the parking lot toward the patrol vehicles.

Brown sped out of the parking lot into the desert area where he crashed the car a short distance away and then fled on foot.

No one was injured during the incident.
