Once in custody, he proceeded to damage the interior of the police vehicle.

Further investigation into the matter revealed that Nelson was in possession of a firearm. Officers found he was prohibited from possessing a firearm due to being a convicted felon for prior felony offenses.

The officer and the female victim sustained injuries but are expected to recover.
