On March 24, 2014 at 12:51 a.m., deputies were dispatched to a reckless driver call on I-75 northbound from Adamo Drive. The caller advised that a Dodge Ram had struck his vehicle and fled northbound on the interstate. When deputies arrived on scene, they realized that the suspect driver was wanted for domestic violence and fleeing to elude charges from an earlier incident in District IV. Deputies followed the vehicle until it entered Pasco County. Aviation continued to monitor the vehicle and Pasco County Sheriff's Office units responded to the interstate to attempt to come in contact with the suspect. The suspect continued northbound through Pasco County, turned southbound at State Road 52 and then exited I-75 at State Road 54. Pasco deputies were communicating with the suspect, but the suspect would not exit his vehicle and stated that he was armed. At that time, Pasco County Sheriff's Office SWAT team arrived on scene and the suspect started his vehicle and drove away, striking stop sticks with his right, front tire.
The suspect continued southbound on I-75 and stopped just north of State Road 56 where he was taken into custody with the assistance of Pasco County Sheriff's Office SWAT. The suspect was taken to Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel for a scrape he received on his head during the arrest. After release from the hospital, the suspect will be transported to the Pasco County Jail. At this time Trevino faces one count of Battery Domestic Violence and two counts of Fleeing to Elude, with more charges forthcoming.
