RENO, NV - Washoe County sheriff's deputies have arrested a man for whom they spent Sunday night searching.

Fifty-three-year-old Michael Paszek surrendered to deputies late Monday morning, according to deputies, after he saw himself on TV.

The search started after a woman showed up with injuries at a fire station in Washoe Valley around 7:15 PM Sunday. She was taken to Carson Tahoe Medical Center for treatment. She indicated Paszek had hurt her, leading to the search for him in the Davis Creek area.

During the search, witnesses reported hearing at least two gunshots in the area. At one point, deputies evacuated campers for their own safety.

Due to Paszek's accessibility to firearms, being without a vehicle for transportation and in close proximity to the Davis Creek Regional Park/Campground, it was determined that Davis Creek Park would be evacuated and the roadway shut down.

The Nevada Highway Patrol assisted in shutting down traffic on Old 395 Highway. The Sheriff's Office Special Weapons and Tactics (S.W.A.T.) team, K9 Teams, Sheriff's Hostage Negotiators, RAVEN Helicopter flight crew, and additional patrol units were called to assist in the search for Paszek.

The crews searched overnight and into the morning. At approximately 9 a.m., Sheriff's Detectives made contact with Paszek by phone and Paszek agreed to turn himself in at Davis Creek Park within the hour.

Paszek was arrested and transported to the Washoe County Sheriff's Office Detention Facility, where he was booked on one misdemeanor count of Domestic Battery (2nd Offense), one count of False Imprisonment (gross misdemeanor), and one count of violating an Extended Protective Order (misdemeanor).

Paszek's bail was set at $10,500.
