Texarkana, Texas, police arrested 46-year-old Scott Daniels for several charges last Friday afternoon.
Officers got a call of a disturbance at a convenience store in the 1600 block of Robison Road. The suspect had already left when they arrived, but the clerk told police 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. The clerk alleges that, after Daniels swore at her, he asked the clerk how she would feel if he shot the place up. As he was walking out the door, she alleged that 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 started 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.
Back at the store, Officer Christopher Flores was able to watch the surveillance video and confirm that Daniels was the suspect in question. Daniels was charged with Deadly Conduct, Possession of a Firearm by a Felon, and Evading Arrest. He was booked into the Bi-State Jail with a bond set at $25,000.
