LEXINGTON, N.C. – A man who led Lexington police on a chase and caused a standoff has been taken into custody.
Josh Bocanegra, 31, of Lexington, was alone in a white Dodge truck when police tried to stop him Friday night in connection with an ongoing domestic violence investigation.
Bocanegra was reported to be in possession of a firearm while violating a domestic violence protective order, Lexington police said in a press release.
The suspect refused to stop, leading police on a chase, which eventually ended in the middle of Hamilton Road.
Bocanegra then refused to exit the vehicle, brandishing what he claimed to be a firearm, according to police.
Officers secured the immediate area, working with nearby residents to take cover in their homes or voluntarily evacuate.
The suspect was taken into custody at about 2:20 a.m. Saturday. No injuries were reported. Police have not said what charges the suspect faces.
