The driver of the white van was identified as as Curtis Luther Dalton Jr., AKA Bubba, according to the Iredell County Sheriff’s Office. Deputies were looking for him in connection with a home invasion.
The white van initially escaped the police, but then was re-spotted on Debbie Lane. Police tried ramming him several times – at one point, the van even rammed back.
