What happens in Vegas is supposed to stay in Vegas- unless you bring it with you.
One Airman learned this the hard way after he was arrested in Arizona, having gone on a drug-induced bender that ended in handcuffs and a slew of charges.
21-year-old Brandon Cory Tyner was driving through Arizona on Saturday night when he caight the attention of Wickenberg Police Officer Justin Lemon, who clocked Tyner going in excess of 40 MPH over the speed limit.
Taking chase, he pursued Tyner, who weaved through traffic to avoid Lemon, eventually hitting 80-90 MPH in a 35 MPH zone. Eventually, Tyner lost Lemon under a railroad bridge, only to end up in the officer’s sight shortly after.
Blocking Tyner’s path, Lemon dismounted and drew his service pistol, ordering Tyner to stop. Undeterred, Tyner aimed his vehicle toward Lemon and hit the gas, smashing into Lemon’s vehicle and injuring him as he barely avoided being hit.
Picking up on Lemon’s behalf, the Arizona Highway Patrol soon found Tyner’s abandoned car near a neighborhood off the highway, resulting in a swarm of Wickenburg PD, DPS Troopers and Yavapai County Deputies descending upon the area.
Searching the area for over an hour, law enforcement eventually got Tyner to give himself up, thanks to his girlfriend establishing a line of communication.
According to KVOA, Tyner told police that he had consumed meth and heroin, and that he believed he was in a video game during the chase. Officers soon searched the vehicle and found heroin residue, right where Tyner told them it would be.
Tyner is being charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon (meaning his vehicle), aggravated assault against an officer, unlawful flight from law enforcement, reckless driving, endangerment, criminal damage, narcotic drug possession and use and drug paraphernalia possession and use.
