Terrifying Video Shows Moment Illegal Immigrant Opens Fire on Cop
The Washington County Sheriff's Office said in a news release the incident happened Sunday, after County Corporal Brett Thompson tried to initiate a traffic stop around 12:43 p.m. in Tontitown, located just outside Fayetteville.
The driver, 29-year-old Luis Cobos-Cenobio, didn't stop and the officer reportedly initiated a brief chase. After eventually pulling over, Cobos-Cenobio got out of his vehicle and began shooting at Thompson, officials said.
The video released Tuesday shows the moment the 29-year-old riddled Thompson's vehicle with bullet holes. Thompson quickly returned fire, and Cobos-Cenobio fled the scene.
The 29-year-old was found by another officer about a half-hour later and once again shot at police, officials said.
Cobos-Cenobio is in jail on $500,000 bond.
Authorities have charged him with four counts of attempted capital murder, committing a terrorist act, fleeing, possession of a controlled substance, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
