LAS CRUCES, NM — Las Cruces police had a difficult time arresting a fugitive.
Noe Jimenez has a lengthy rap sheet and was most recently wanted for making threats to law enforcement officers.
Police found the registered sex offender Wednesday in a vehicle at the intersection of Avenida De Mesilla and Hickory Street.
He allegedly refused to pull over. Officers finally stopped him but Jiminez wouldn't get out of the car.
Police finally got Jiminez out of the vehicle after warding off two aggressive pit bulls. They then discovered he was wearing body armor.
Jiminez is now facing several new charges, including aggravated battery on a police officer.
