A man that allegedly tried to stab a Hidalgo county deputy has been arrested, but not before putting up a fight.

Authorities say that 41 year-old Ubaldo Martinez was shot once in the lower leg by a deputy after he fled a separate scene where he allegedly tried to stab another deputy. Law enforcement found the suspect hiding underneath a mobile home on the 6600 block of Valero. Deputies ordered Martinez to come out, when he did, he was holding a knife and piece of wood and lunged at the deputy. That's when deputies shot at him and hitting Martinez in the leg. Deputies report that even after being shot, Martinez continued throwing rocks and dirt buckets at the deputies.
