A Corpus Christi Police Officer initiated a traffic stop at Dabney and Staples Street when he saw a green 1993 Honda Civic drive on the road with an inoperable headlight.
The vehicles stopped and the driver of the Civic, 29-year-old John Tamez (11/5/1984) exited the vehicle and approached the Officer. The Officer instructed Tamez to get back in the vehicle, and Tamez ran from the scene. Corpus Christi Police Officers chased and apprehended Tamez and discovered Tamez had an active municipal court warrant for his arrest.
Tamez was arrested for the warrant for his arrest and for evading arrest. The Civic was taken to the city impound and Officers delivered Tamez to the city detention center.
