A man accused of shooting at deputies during a dangerous chase has been arrested. 

Santa Fe County Sheriff’s deputies were trying to pull over Randy Branch last Tuesday after reports he pointed a gun at a driver who tried to pass him. 

They say Branch took off, swerving in and out of traffic, reaching 120 mph on Highway 285, at one point opening fire at deputies. 

Bernalillo County deputies caught up with him this week. 

On top of assault and fleeing charges, Branch is also facing charges for having the gun, since he’s a convicted felon.
