On Monday, around 8:30 a.m., a Pinal County Sheriff’s Office deputy conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle traveling on the I-10 near mile marker 217. The driver, Timothy Bryoles, sped off.

A pursuit was initiated.

At one point, the suspect vehicle crossed over into oncoming traffic. The vehicle ultimately rolled over near mile marker 213.
Two of the four passengers (all undocumented) were ejected from the vehicle and were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The 32-year-old Bryoles, was arrested and booked in the Pinal County Jail for unlawful flight and aggravated assault charges. Possible drug impairment is also being investigated.

“In his attempt to make a dollar, this individual put the lives of his four passengers, my Deputies, and everyone else on the road at risk,” said Sheriff Mark Lamb. “Human smugglers have zero regard for human life, and because of this, we must do all we can to stop this illegal and dangerous industry.”
