A man sought after skipping a court hearing Tuesday has surrendered after a brief standoff in Reno.

25-year-old Antonio Davis was seen the afternoon of June 6, 2018, in the area of Oddie and Montello by a Washoe County Sheriff's deputy. Davis was in a car with another man, Terrell Lopp, who then led the deputy on a short car chase through town, according to investigators.

The chase ended near an apartment at 6th and Spokane in Reno, where the car stalled. Lopp was arrested shortly after that, but Davis, who was armed, broke into the apartment, leading Reno Police and Sheriff's deputies to negotiate for his surrender. He walked out and was taken into custody about an hour after the standoff began. He does not live in that apartment; nor does anyone he knows. It's not clear whether anyone was home in the apartment when he broke in, but there were no hostages.

The Washoe County Sheriff's Office says Davis had run from deputies after failing a mandatory drug test before a scheduled court appearance June 5, and had been on the run since.

Davis was already facing a Reno charge of battery with a deadly weapon; he is now charged with battery by prisoner, resisting a public officer, escape by felony prisoner, driver disobeying a peace officer and parole violation. Lopp is charged with disobeying a peace officer and driving on a revoked license.
