LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) - An Arizona man has been arrested in New Mexico on a federal complaint charging him with assault on a peace officer and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

FBI officials say 39-year-old Zachary Stephen Reeder of Marana is expected to appear Monday in U.S. District Court in Las Cruces.

It was unclear Friday if he has a lawyer yet.

He was arrested Thursday night after a car chase in Las Cruces by law enforcement investigating a report of a possibly armed and dangerous suspect in a stolen vehicle.

During the pursuit, Reeder’s car allegedly rammed a vehicle driven by an FBI task force officer.

After executing search warrants on Reeder’s car and the hotel room he rented, Las Cruces police investigators reported finding a shotgun, handgun and methamphetamine.
