Brazos Valley Burn Bans: The following counties are under a Burn Ban: Austin, Brazos, Burleson, Grimes, Houston, Lee, Leon, Madison, Milam, Robertson, San Jacinto, Trinity, Walker, Washington
A Brazos County man is recovering from a gunshot wound after leading law enforcement on a high-speed chase, and then pulling a gun on officers.
It started about 10:20 p.m, Saturday, in the 2500 block of OSR in Benchley.
Sheriff's officials say Wayne Hefti got into an argument with his wife, their 22-year-old daughter, and her 24-year-old female friend.
Authorities say the argument turned violent and Hefti, 34, threatened them with a gun and a knife.
The women were able to get away from the house and call the sheriff's department. When a deputy spotted Hefti's truck, the chase began.
The pursuit ended in Caldwell after Hefti ran over spike strips and flattened his tires.
But when he got out of his truck and pointed a rifle at officers, they opened fire. Hefti was hit one-time.
He's hospitalized, but is expected to live.
Hefti now faces numerous charges, with more pending.
Texas Rangers are investigating the shooting.
