Man arrested in connection to New Year’s Eve police chase


The man shot by a New Mexico police officer during an interstate chase is finally behind bars. 

Video shows a Jal police officer in pursuit of a stolen truck on New Year’s Eve when the truck started backing into him. 

It all started in Kermit, Texas just across the border from Jal when police say Angel Rodriguez stole the truck and fled. 

Jal Police joined the chase along Highway 18, but it was later called off and Rodriguez got away. This week, police in Kermit tracked down Rodriguez.
