Tavores Dewayne Henderson.
The cops managed to find him pretty quickly.
Not surprised, with that hair.
A Texas man wanted for felony murder in the death of a police sergeant he fatally struck with his car was arrested Thursday following a more than 24-hour search.
Tavores Henderson, 21, was arrested without incident at a home in Houston, police announced in a tweet.
Authorities began searching for Henderson Tuesday night after he hit Nassau Bay Police Sgt. Kaila Sullivan, 43, with his car during a traffic stop at an apartment complex. Police said Sullivan and other officers stopped Henderson just before 8:30 p.m. and found that he was wanted for assaulting a family member.
Henderson, “fought” with the officers during his arrest and was able to break free, Nassau Bay Chief of Police Tim Cromie said at a news conference Wednesday. Henderson then got back in the car and drove away, striking Sullivan.
The sergeant was taken to the hospital, where she died.
Henderson abandoned his vehicle a short distance away from the scene and fled on foot, police said. There was a $20,000 reward for information leading to his capture, police said.
