A Brownwood man was sentenced to eight year in prison Wednesday in connection with an incident in which he fled from an attempted traffic stop and later pointed a shotgun at an officer.

Jason Brewer, 40, took a plea deal and pleaded guilty before Brown County Court-at-Law Sam Moss to aggravated assault against a public servant, harassment of a public servant and evading arrest on July 12, 2017. Brewer also pleaded guilty to possession of a controlled substance and evading arrest in connection with a January 2017 incident.

A police report by Brownwood officer Jayme Bowman gave details of Brewer’s arrest in July 2017.

Bowman was dispatched at 8:03 p.m. to the area of Belle Plain and West Austin to assist then-Sgt. Troy Carroll on a reckless driving call. Bowman searched the area could not locate the driver, who was identified in call notes as Brewer.
The officers later saw Bowman driving recklessly and activated their patrol vehicle’s lights and sirens in an effort to stop him. After a three-block pursuit, Brewer locked his brakes in the 1500 block of Main Boulevard and made a right turn into the driveway of his residence.
Brewer ran into the house and Bowman followed him through the living room and into a back bedroom. Brewer entered a closet and pointed a shotgun a Bowman, the officer’s report states.

Bowman drew his pistol, and Brewer’s father jumped in front of Bowman and got control of the shotgun. As Bowman escorted Brewer out to his patrol vehicle, Brewer “mule kicked” Bowman. 

Bowman took Brewer to the ground, then stood him up and resumed walking him to his patrol vehicle. Brewer spit blood on Carroll and Bowman, the report states.
