On Saturday, December 28, 2019, at approximately 11:59 p.m., Haltom City officers attempted to stop a black 2005 Cadillac STS they believed to be driven by an impaired driver. The vehicle was eastbound in the 4800 block of NE 28th Street. The vehicle continued eastbound on NE 28th Street and crossed over East Belknap onto Midway Road. When the officer pulled in behind the vehicle and attempted to stop the vehicle, the driver failed to stop the vehicle and fled from the officer southbound in the 2300 block of McGuire. After a short pursuit, the vehicle became disabled after striking a concrete barrier on the service road of SH121 east of Handley Ederville Road. As the vehicle slowed, the driver failed to put the vehicle in park, and the vehicle continued rolling forward as the occupants were exiting. As the driver was exiting the vehicle, he fell to the ground, and as he was getting up, the officer noticed the driver had a handgun in his right hand. The officer heard the handgun discharge, and the driver threw the handgun in the direction of the vehicle and fled on foot into a wooded construction area. The officer did not believe the weapon was fired at him. The officer believed the suspect accidentally fired the weapon as he was getting up from the ground. Additional units arrived on scene and the passenger was taken into custody after hiding behind a concrete barrier. While the vehicle was being cleared by a Haltom City officer and his K9 partner, a Richland Hills officer sustained minor injuries when he was accidently bitten by the K9. A search ensued for the driver that fled on foot. Haltom City and Watauga officers and their K9 partners began tracking the driver. The Texas Department of Public Safety helicopter arrived on scene and assisted with the search.

After a short search, the driver, who was found hiding in an industrial complex, was taken into custody without incident. The driver, who initially gave false information, was identified as Carlos Hernandez, 20 years of age. He faces charges of Evading Arrest or Detention with a Vehicle, Unlawful Possession of a Firearm by a Felon, Possession of a Controlled Substance, and Fail to Identify Fugitive/Giving False or Fictitious Information, as he had outstanding warrants for his arrest from Haltom City and Fort Worth. The passenger was identified as Nicky Channita, 25 years of age. He faces a charge of Evading Arrest or Detention/Previous Convictions. He was also held on outstanding warrants from Haltom City.
