Ensign led Reservation Police on a chase throughout the Tule River Reservation in Porterville. During the pursuit, he hit a Tulare County Sheriff’s unit causing minor damage to the patrol car.
Ensign then deliberately targeted a parked Reservation Police truck, with the Chief of the Department of Public Safety inside and drove head on into it at a high rate of speed, with injuries.

Ensign was tased and taken into custody by a TCSO Deputy. He was transported to Kaweah Delta Medical Center to be medically cleared, before being booked at the Adult Pre-Trial Facility for Attempted Murder of a Peace Officer.”
