ODESSA Odessa Crimestoppers is offering a reward in connection with an aggravated assault on a public servant.
As NewsWest 9 has reported, a DPS Trooper was working off duty at MCM Elegante Hotel around 1:50 a.m. Sunday morning when he noticed a dark blue pickup driving erratically and nearly striking parked cars.
When the pickup stopped to pick up a passenger, the trooper attempted to make contact with the driver.
While the trooper attempted to make contact, the pickup hit the trooper two times when the driver refused to stop.
According to a preliminary investigation, the trooper fired twice but the driver took off and has not been caught.
Officials are looking for a blue Dodge pickup truck with after-market rims.
Odessa Crimestoppers is offering a $1,000 cash reward for information leading to the driver’s arrest.
If you have any information, contact Odessa Crimestoppers at (432) 333-TIPS.
