SMITH COUNTY, TX (KLTV) - A man was arrested in Paris, Texas after Game Wardens said he fired a handgun from a vehicle and led officials on a pursuit.

On Dec. 7, 2018, multiple agencies helped apprehend Timothy Ray Geraldon in Paris, Texas, who was wanted on outstanding warrants, according to Texas Parks and Wildlife Game Wardens.

Game wardens, members of the United States Marshal fugitive task force and the Smith County Sheriff’s Office assisted with the arrest.

Geraldon was wanted after fleeing a traffic stop Saturday night in Smith County.
