POLK COUNTY, TX (KTRE) - A Livingston man has been arrested after allegedly shooting at a deputy before crashing his vehicle during a chase Tuesday morning.
According to Captain Rickie Childers, Deputy Josh Sanders was responding to a call in the Holiday Lakes Subdivision and it appears Joseph Alexander Swansey, 24, fired a gun at the deputy. The deputy then returned fire before getting in a chase with Swansey.
Childers said Swansey crashed and then ran from the deputy before deputies were able to catch him.
Both Sanders and Swansey were taken to a Livingston hospital but both are OK. Swansey is now in the custody of the Polk County Sheriff's Office and Texas Rangers are on scene investigating.
