The Harris County Sheriff’s Office on Tuesday said nobody has been arrested. The office has released surveillance images of two men sought after the incident early Monday outside a theater in Tomball.

Deputies are seeking a white Ford F-150 truck. KPRC-TV reports tire marks were left on a grassy median and a small tree was uprooted.
