BRYAN, Texas – An hours-long search reportedly ended with the arrest of a 37-year-old Bryan man who allegedly injured a Texas DPS trooper during a traffic stop and took off.

Department of Public Safety spokesman Sgt. Jimmy Morgan said Jose Manuel Flores was pulled over for a brake light violation at about 3 p.m. Sunday near the intersection of William J. Bryan Parkway and Brazos Avenue.

Morgan said the trooper reportedly tried to take Flores into custody after discovering he did not have a driver’s license.

However, Flores allegedly resisted arrest, injuring the trooper in the process, and then fled on foot.

Authorities, including officers with the Bryan Police Department, were able to locate Flores at his home, where he was arrested for an outstanding parole warrant for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. He also faces additional charges of evading arrest and assault on a peace officer.

Morgan said he wasn’t certain how long the suspect was at-large or how far the man’s house was from the traffic stop.

Flores remained behind bars at the Brazos County Jail on $10,000 bail late Sunday, while the case continued to be investigated.

Morgan said the trooper involved reportedly got minor injuries and was treated at CHI St. Joseph in Bryan before being discharged a short time later. The nature of the trooper’s injuries was not released.

Meanwhile, a spokeswoman for Bryan police referred calls to DPS, saying she couldn’t release any information other than to say they were assisting DPS. No information was released by DPS.

Brazos County court records show Flores was arrested in 2011 and 2016 on aggravated assault with a deadly weapon charges. Six other arrests on various charges since 2009 were also recorded.
