BROWNWOOD, Texas - Brownwood police officers arrested a man on Wednesday after he allegedly led them on a police chase, pointed a gun at them, and assaulted them, according to a report.
Jason Lewis Brewer, 39, of Brownwood is in jail on bonds totaling $311,000, according to Brown County jail records. Court documents show Brown County Court-at-Law Judge Sam Moss increased his bonds on Thursday for previous charges that Brewer had posted bonds for.
Police said they tried to stop Brewer in the North Brownwood area after getting a call of a reckless driver. He instead fled from officers before pulling into his home on the 1500 block of Main Street and hid inside a closet.
According to police, Brewer pointed a shotgun at an officer when he opened the closet door. Police said his dad wrestled the gun away before officers were able to handcuff Brewer.
As he was being led to a police unit, Brewer “mule” kicked an officer in the groin area, according to the report.
When the officers finally subdued him and started walking him back to the unit, Brewer began spitting blood at both responding officers.
The officer’s report noted that he had an open cut, “exposing me to any diseases [Brewer] may have.”
Brewer is in jail on several charges. They include reckless driving; evading arrest or detention with a vehicle; resisting arrest, detention, or transport; three counts of aggravated assault against a public servant; and assault on a public servant.
