Deputies from Brevard County made tapes of the pursuit that led to Dax Rodriguez’s capture.
According to investigators, it all began about 4 p.m. on Wednesday when Titusville police received a report of a guy brandishing a gun and threatening a woman in the 3000 block of Willis Drive.
She managed to get away and go to a neighbor’s house.
Rodriguez allegedly then ran to a house on Carpenter Road in unincorporated Titusville, where he held another person at gunpoint to surrender his car.
