On Wednesday, Douglas County Sheriff’s Office deputies recognized Dondero riding in a car drive by Steven Daniel Fisher, 33.

Deputies said Dondero refused to exit the vehicle, and was removed by three officers. He reportedly tried to strike a deputy with a closed fist.

Fisher was charged with attempting to elude a peace officer, and was jailed on $1,068 bail. He is to appear Wednesday with his court-appointed lawyer Jamie Henry.
