Brothers Arrested After Hit-and-Run, Officer Assault and High Speed Chase


Two San Angelo brothers have been arrested after a series of crimes were committed over the weekend, beginning with a hit-and-run and including the assault of a San Angelo police officer.

Officers encountered the first of the two, 36-year-old Vincent Salcedo, when they were conducting an investigation on a hit-and-run crash int he 200 block of W. Ave. U at 12:30 a.m. Saturday involving a possible intoxicated driver who struck a parked trailer. Salcedo, who appeared to be intoxicated at the time, was standing in the roadway by a damaged trailer. He intially denied knowledge of the incident but then told police an unknown person moved the trailer. Police later learned the alleged hit-and-run suspect, Daniel Salcedo, Vincent's older brother, left the scene prior to their arrival.

During the investigation, V. Salcedo repeatedly interfered and verbally harassed officers. Officers issued V. Salcedo verbal warnings to stop interfering, but he disregarded the warnings, and at one point, used his body to physically block one officer who was trying to photograph the scene. 

When officers advised V. Salcedo he was under arrest for interference, he became combative and resisted arrest. After a brief struggle, Salcedo was taken into custody but remained uncooperative and refused to stand or walk until he complained ants were biting him.  One officer, who was trying to move Salcedo to provide aid for his ant bites, was kicked in the knee. The officer was transported to a local hospital, treated for his injuries and released. 

Vincent Salcedo was charged with assault on a public servant causing injury, interference with duties of a public servant, resisting arrest, and public intoxication. 

Police arrested Daniel Salcedo later that afternoon in an unrelated incident after he led police on a high-speed chase. Police radar clocked a 2001 Chevrolet Tahoe speeding more than 10 mph over the posted speed limit in the 1000 block of Glenna Drive.  The vehicle’s driver, later identified as 42-year-old Daniel Salcedo, Jr., refused to stop for a traffic stop and fled at speeds in excess of 85 mph. The pursuit ended at the Plaza Del Sol Apartment Complex, 4375 Oak Grove Blvd., when D. Salcedo exited his vehicle and ran. Officers located D. Salcedo inside a family member’s apartment a short time later and took him into custody without incident.


D. Salcedo was charged with evading in a motor vehicle and issued multiple traffic citations. D. Salcedo was not charged with the hit and run on Avenue U because the registered owner of the trailer declined to file a report.
