EDEN, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) — Sunday evening Jerome County deputies called off a pursuit after the suspect pulled a gun on deputies. Jerome County Sheriff’s Office said a couple deputies pursued a car after it sped past them near Eden. The pursuit started at about 5 p.m.

Deputies followed the car until it crashed north of Eden. The sheriff’s office told KMVT, the man exited his car and pointed a gun at deputies. The deputies did not pursue the suspect on foot due to safety concerns. The Jerome Sheriff’s Office identified the man as Brian Pinell.
