Illegal Charged with Four Counts of Attempted Capital Murder, Committing a Terroristic Act, Fleeing, Possession of a Controlled Substance, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia After Traffic Stop Shootout with Arkansas Cops

An illegal alien was taken into custody after opening fire on two police officers during consecutive traffic stops, and charged with a slew of crimes.

Washington County Police issued the following statement:

On November 11, 2018 at approximately 12:43 p.m., Washington County Corporal Brett Thompson initiated a traffic stop on the driver of a vehicle (green Saturn), traveling northbound on S. Barrington Road near Steele Road in Tontitown, for a traffic violation. The driver refused to stop, then turned eastbound onto Steele Road, slowed down, but continued driving. Corporal Thompson could see the driver moving around in the seat, and could see there was a passenger with him as well. The driver of the vehicle eventually stopped on Steele Road. When Corporal Thompson exited his vehicle, the driver immediately opened his car door and began shooting at Corporal Thompson. Corporal Thompson returned fire and numerous rounds were exchanged before the suspect jumped back into his vehicle and took off, eastbound on Steele Road. He traveled a short distance, stopped and let a female passenger out of the vehicle, then took off again.

Shortly after the first shootout, the suspect, 29-year-old Luis Cobos-Cenobio, an illegal alien, was located. He reportedly fired upon police officers again before being taken into custody, according to Fox News. 

“Authorities said the 29-year-old had a wound to the left arm and shoulder and was taken to a nearby hospital before being handed over to police,” the report said. “Cobos-Cenobio has been charged with four counts of attempted capital murder, committing a terroristic act, fleeing, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia, according to police.”

His bond is set at $500,000
