    He was sentenced to 15 years in jail for the controlled substance charge in 1991, but released and paroled multiple times after that conviction.

    Chopper video showed police subduing Sillers and what appeared to be an officer punching him. Fort Worth Police Sgt. Pedro Criado said, "we have been made aware of the incident that ocurred between our officer and a wanted felon at the termination of a pursuit today. The incident is under investigation, however its important to suspend judgement until that internal investigation is completed."
