BEVERLY HILLS, Texas (KWTX) - Authorities in the Waco area on Wednesday arrested Patrick Scott, 28, of Beverly Hills, after a standoff that was the result of an alleged domestic violence incident, said Beverly Hills Police Chief Kory Martin.

Martin said Scott got into an argument with his girlfriend at about 1:30 p.m. and pulled out a shotgun. The victim ran away from his home, but Scott pursued her in a pickup and tried to run her over, police said.

The woman had to jump out of the truck’s way.

Authorities eventually found Scott at a home near Ann and Harvard.

The Waco Police SWAT was called to assist and the suspect was taken into custody without incident at about 6 p.m.

Martin said Scott will be charged with aggravated assault.
