Let’s stop and thank Texarkana Texas Police Department Officers Lauren Freeman and Christopher Flores for their quick actions last Friday when they apprehended forty-six-year-old Scott Daniels. “Daniels was charged with Deadly Conduct, Possession of a Firearm by a Felon, and Evading Arrest. He was booked into the Bi-State Jail, and his total bond was later set at $25,000. As of this post, he’s still sitting in jail.” Complete details to follow.
Texarkana Texas Police Department
Last Friday afternoon, we arrested 46 year old Scott Daniels for several charges.
We got a call of a disturbance at a convenience store in the 1600 block of Robison Road. The suspect had already left when we got there, but the clerk told us that the man became upset with her because he didn’t have enough money to buy a cigar and she refused his request to buy it for him. After he cussed her out, he asked the clerk how she would feel if he shot the place up. As he was walking out the door, he pulled a pistol from his waistband and pointed it directly at her.
A couple blocks away, Officer Lauren Freeman spotted a man matching the suspect’s description standing in a front yard. When she got out of her patrol unit, he immediately took off running – throwing down a gun as she chased him. After a short foot pursuit, she was able to take him into custody and recover the gun, which was loaded with a round in the chamber.
Meanwhile, back at the store, Officer Christopher Flores was able to watch the surveillance video and confirm that Daniels was the guy we were looking for. Daniels was charged with Deadly Conduct, Possession of a Firearm by a Felon, and Evading Arrest. He was booked into the Bi-State Jail, and his total bond was later set at $25,000. As of this post, he’s still sitting in jail.
