The report states that the victim said she asked Mr. Zwetz several times to “leave her alone and leave.” Mr. Zwetz allegedly followed the victim for about 6 miles after she left her job interview to pick up her children. The victim contacted HSPD when Mr. Zwetz continued to follow her from the school.

The police report states that he pulled into a parking lot, did not stop, and continued to drive over a mile, passing stopped vehicles on the right, with multiple HSPD officers pursuing him. Mr. Zwetz allegedly pulled over, finally, at his attorney’s office on Ouachita Avenue. He allegedly told officers that he became scared and drove to his attorney’s office.
Officers confirmed that the order of protection against him was valid. Mr. Zwetz was arrested and transported to the Garland County Detention Center for processing. He is charged with Violation Of Protection Order and Fleeing In A Vehicleand was being held in jail with zero bond.
