LUBBOCK COUNTY, TX (KCBD) -

The Lubbock County Sheriff's Office held a news conference Wednesday at 10:30 a.m. to discuss the events that led to a deputy being injured during a chase on Tuesday morning.

The chase ended in the 3800 block of East Slaton Highway just north of Montford Unit prison just before 4 a.m.

Sheriff Kelly Rowe said his deputies were investigating a street crime operation when they noticed a stolen vehicle. Deputies tried to pull the vehicle over, but the driver refused to stop. Because of safety concerns and because the vehicle entered into Slaton city limits, deputies stopped the chase.

Slaton Police tried to pull over the vehicle for traffic violations, but again, the driver refused to stop. Slaton Police began chasing the vehicle, which was now headed towards Lubbock.

Lubbock deputies then picked up the chase again when they realized it was the same vehicle, stopping near the Montford Unit prison, where three people inside of the vehicle got out and ran. All three were arrested after a brief foot chase, with assistance by a K-9 unit.

That is when a Lubbock Sheriff's Deputy tripped and fell, and was run over by a Slaton Police officer. The deputy, whose name has not been released, was treated at University Medical Center and released. He is now resting at home and is expected to return to duty soon.

Sheriff Rowe says there is no foul play, but wants to increase communication between agencies. "We do have a communication gap there that I certainly do want to look at and review, just in the sense that I feel like our officers should always be able to, regardless of agency, be able to communicate effectively, especially in a high level event like this," said Sheriff Rowe.

All three suspects were booked into the Lubbock County Detention Center.

They have been identified as Adrian Minjarez, 26, Adelaida Robles, 22, and Juan Manual Garcia, 23.

Minjarez has been charged with evade in vehicle, possession of a controlled substance, resisting arrest, defective taillight, and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle. He is being held on a combined $20,000 bond.

Robles has been charged with prohibited substance in a correctional facility and a warrant for possession of a controlled substance. She is being held on a $3,000 bond for the first charge and a $2,500 bond for the warrant.

Garcia has been charged with a parole violation, and no bond is listed in jail records.

Sheriff Rowe said the Lubbock Police Department was asked to investigate the accident.
