A sheriff’s deputy tried to stop Freeman’s vehicle for a traffic violation on Interstate 40 near Ask Fork around 10:45 a.m. Monday. The vehicle kept going and a man who was thrown from the car has been detained. Authorities say a high-speed chase ensued until the suspect’s vehicle became disabled and crashed into a culvert near the Bearizona Wildlife Park.
They say Freeman exited the car and fired at least one shot at the deputy before disappearing into the forest.
