The driver of a vehicle in Shiner did not yield to authorities and attempted to avoid authorities when Shiner police attempted a traffic stop Tuesday afternoon, according to a Shiner Police Department news release.

After a pursuit began, the driver threw a firearm, which was recovered, out the window of the vehicle, according to the news release. The driver was arrested on multiple felony charges and was issued tickets.
