Tindell, 36, and an unidentified woman in a silver BMW, raced away from deputies from the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department after being linked to a shooting at a home in the 7400 block of Elk Trail in Yucca Valley about 2:15 a.m. Wednesday. A 43-year-old man had been shot and was taken to a hospital.

Tindell now faces ten total criminal charges; one count of attempted murder, seven counts of attempted murder of peace officer/firefighter, one count of assault of peace officer/firefighter, and one count of evading an officer.

During the Facebook live stream, Tindell tells the pregnant woman sitting beside him in the car to cover her ears, as he leans out the window and fires several shots toward deputies.

Tindell shifts from using profanity to describe the woman, whom he referred to as his “hostage,” and threatening to shoot her to eventually calling her “babe” and saying he loves her in the video.

“Now I have to raise our son alone, thank you,” she tells him.

Tindell told the camera that he was streaming live for all his fans.

The video captured Tindell driving recklessly and occasionally holding the phone out the car window, to capture the patrol cars in pursuit. At one point in the video, the woman cried and Tindell attempted to console her.

“I forgot what it’s like to to see the first person you pop,” Tindell said.

Ultimately Tindell crashed with a patrol car and opened fire at deputies. He was wounded in the gunfight and was taken to a hospital. The female passenger was not injured, but was taken to a hospital as a precaution. Tindell is expected to survive his injuries.

During their investigation, detectives discovered that Tindell was wanted by the FBI in connection with a double homicide in Henderson, Nevada. In that case, Henderson police found a man and a woman dead from head injuries inside a home last Friday.
