On the morning of January 13, 2010, Officer Byron “Trey” Economidy pinned Ellis’ Corvette into a parking space in front of the 7-Eleven on the corner of Constitition and Eubank as part of an auto theft investigation. Economidy said he had run Ellis’ license plate through a database and the plate came back to a “Ford COR,” which didn’t match the Chevy Corvette Ellis was driving. According to Economidy, Ellis admitted to being high on methamphetamine and handed Economidy a knife. As the officer took the knife back to his patrol car, Ellis got out of the Corvette and held a gun to his own head. Economidy said he then pulled his AR-15 from the trunk of his police car and sought cover behind a gas pump. (Image: Roberto E. Rosales/Journal)
