The pursuit of an armed man by New Mexico deputies ended after he called his mother and then got a call from the sheriff —- another one of his relatives —- who urged him to surrender.

Chaves County Sheriff Mike Herrington said he called Jeremy Graves as he was being pursued in the Roswell area.

Herrington told the Roswell Daily Record that Graves threw the gun out of his car and stopped but didn’t get out until deputies tried to break a window to take him into custody.

Graves doesn’t yet have an attorney who could comment.
