Theft Suspect Crashes Car While Avoiding Police

KINGSVILLE - A police officer got into a struggle last night with a man accused of stealing from the Walmart in Kingsville.

The officer was talking to store employees when a customer let them know about a strange man in his vehicle.

36-year old Omar Pinon started a fight with the officer, but was able to run away to his own car. The officer held on as Pinon took off.

At least one shot was fired at Pinon who then wrecked his car on General Cavazos Boulevard.

Medics took Pinon to the hospital because of a broken leg. The Kingsville Police Department plans on filing a long list of charges against him.

The officer was not injured in the incident.
