FLORESVILLE -- A San Antonio man is being held in the Wilson County Jail on a total of $22,500 bond, according to jail records, after police here say he stole a truck Dec. 2 from the Outlaw Mudd Fest near Poth.
Carpier Jerry Faz, 19, is charged with assault against a public servant, unauthorized use of a vehicle, evading arrest or detention with a vehicle, evading arrest or detention, and theft of property worth more than $500 but less than $1,500. According to Lt. Chad Clark of the Floresville Police Department, officers from his department were notified at approximately 11:30 p.m. by the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office of the stolen truck.
Floresville Patrolman Robert Gonzalez spotted the truck and tried to initiate a traffic stop. The driver, identified as Faz, allegedly fled in the truck before parking it in a field and fleeing on foot. When Gonzalez attempted to pursue Faz, the officer slipped and tore his calf muscle, as the suspect got away.
Early the next morning, someone reported seeing a man matching Faz’s description near the Pruski’s Valero on U.S. 181 in Floresville. Officers responded and found Faz hiding in a bathroom.
