While en route, deputies spotted a car that matched the description of a car involved in the home invasion. During pursuit of the suspect car, a deputy deploying a stop stick, a tire deflation device, was hit by the vehicle.

Two people in the vehicle were arrested and deputies determined that the car was not involved in the home invasion. Two suspects, both men, in the initial home invasion case, near Brighton,  were also arrested.
