Mulder was believed to have stolen a 1996 Buick Skylark from the area. The license plate number is BNR 3402, Bennett said.

Mulder was being taken to jail for a parole violation. He was handcuffed at the time, deputies said.

The suspect is described as a white male, 5 feet 9 inches tall, weighs 150 pounds, and has brown hair and blue eyes. Bennett said Mulder has a large tattoo on his left shoulder with the words “cry later” in the design.

Mulder faces possible felony charges of malicious destruction of police property, escape from custody and vehicle theft.
