A spokesperson said deputies were able to connect George to a stolen Dodge Challenger Hellcat out of Windsor and a BOLO was issued. Another agency spotted the vehicle around 11 a.m. driving southbound on Interstate 25. Authorities followed him to an exit, where he went to a gas station on the corner of E. Mulberry Street and Greenfield Court. He was taken into custody. He was tased and evaluated at the scene, the sheriff's office said.

He was taken into custody at 11:40 a.m. on suspicion of auto theft, as the homicide case remains under investigation.

The Colorado State Patrol, Larimer County Sheriff's Office and the Fort Collins Police Department were involved in his arrest.

An advisement hearing is scheduled for Thursday, Nov. 5 at 8:30 a.m.
