Extended pursuit and stand-off in Sweetwater, one in custody


Yesterday morning, the Nolan County Sheriff’s Office received a call regarding an individual threatening to kill another Nolan County resident over domestic relationship problems ongoing between the two parties. This same individual had threatened suicide over the last couple of days and was being sought by law enforcement for welfare reasons as well as a suspect in the recent threat.
At 7:12AM, Tuesday morning, Deputy Daniel King was dispatched to an address on E. Bradford Lane, just east of Sweetwater regarding this subject. The suspect, Daniel Eller, was communicating via cell phone to the victim that he was threatening, stating that he was going to kill her. Deputy King responded to the victim’s address and spoke with the female party there. The suspect was not at or near the address at that point, but NCSO personnel began searching the surrounding area looking for Eller in the vehicle described. Sgt. Angie Collier, with Nolan County Sheriff’s Office, did locate the suspect in the eastbound I-20 rest area near mile marker 256 in Nolan County at about 9:00AM.
