A man wanted after an altercation with a Llano County Sheriffs officer has been found and arrested by law enforcement in Austin.
Sergio Martinez, 22, was arrested at a residence in the 6800 block of Wake Forest Lane by the Lone Star Fugitive Task force Tuesday after a 22-day search involving officers from Llano County Sheriff’s Office, Llano Police Department, the Texas Rangers and Texas Department of Public safety, according to a release by Llano County Sheriffs.
He was sought by police after a March 18 incident when he
was reported to have evaded arrest during a routine traffic stop and punched
Llano County Sheriff Corporal Mark Burke, knocking out a tooth and causing
serious injury to his jaw. Martinez was booked into the Travis County Jail.
