Manhunt subject arraigned on multiple charges
The subject of Friday’s manhunt in San Juan has been arraigned on multiple charges.
Jose “Killer Joe” Garcia was charged with aggravated assault against a public servant, evading arrest and detention, resisting arrest and evading arrest with a vehicle Saturday at the San Juan Municipal Court.
A manhunt was initiated Friday afternoon after authorities say Garcia “intentionally” struck a deputy constable with a gray GMC during a traffic stop, then fled the scene.
Garcia was located hours later in a brush area with the assistance of U.S. Marshals, according to San Juan Police Chief Juan Gonzalez.
Bond was set at $350,000.
Garcia was transported to the Hidalgo County jail following his arraignment.
