VICTORIA, Texas (AP) – Authorities in South Texas are searching for nine people who fled from an SUV after fighting with a deputy.

The Victoria County Sheriff’s Office says deputies had pulled over the vehicle during a traffic stop around noon Sunday when the individuals began fighting with one of the officers. The SUV had been stopped south of Victoria, about 120 miles (193 kilometers) southwest of Houston.

The sheriff’s department says it’s using a helicopter and dogs to try to find the individuals.

The Victoria Advocate reports that the deputy didn’t require medical treatment.

Deputy Chief Roy Boyd says Border Patrol agents have been called to help with the search.
