Officer Matt Fey of the North Las Vegas Police Department conducts a routine traffic stop on a vehicle that ran a stop sign. Officer Fey becomes suspicious of the occupants due to their nervous behavior during questioning. When the defiant driver repeatedly ignores an order to keep his hands on the steering wheel, Officer Fey is forced to spray him with mace. Surprisingly, the desperate driver escapes the officer’s grasp and takes off in the vehicle. The suspects lead several units into a desert area where the driver bails out of the vehicle. He’s eventually captured in some nearby brush by a swarm of officers. When asked why he ran, the driver says that he was recently released from prison and did not have a license. He’s charged with felony evading, resisting arrest and possible drug possession. The passenger admits to steering the vehicle for the blind driver for fear of his life. He’s charged with obstructing and evading.
