SummaryZurovetz allegedly stole a pickup truck and a handgun and police engaged in a highspeed chase, until Zurovetz wrecked the car. He fled on foot and into a private home. With police surrounding the home, Zurovetz attempted to back out of the driveway in the homeowner's car and was shot multiple times by Allen as well as Travis County Sheriff's Deputy Tracy Stirman. Allen fired four shots into the car’s window as it backed out of the driveway. Allen then chased the car down the street on foot while firing an additional 10 shots, which forced other officers to take cover. Police Chief Art Acevedo fired him for this and faulted Allen’s recollection of the events, saying he gave an account “that was completely not aligned with what evidence and facts showed. I’ve never seen a case where an officer’s recollection was this poor,â€ù he said. But a grand jury declined to indict.
