The same task force arrested Brown in December 2019 after a SWAT standoff in Spicewood.

During their investigation, the task force learned Brown was possibly at an Austin hotel. Officials confirmed this information using surveillance and eventually arrested him in the parking lot without incident.

Brown was taken to the Travis County Jail where he will await extradition.
