An officer with the Millbrook (AL) Police Department was injured when the patrol vehicle he was driving was reportedly intentionally struck by a fleeing suspect.
According to WSFA-TV, officers were called to a home because of a disturbance and determined upon arrival that the suspect had fled the scene in a pickup truck. They gave chase and eventually brought the vehicle to a stop, but not before the subject—identified as 33-year-old Justin Acheson—reportedly rammed one of the pursuing patrol cars.
Acheson then fled on foot but was apprehended by police and arrested, police say.
Acheson was charged with second-degree assault, first degree criminal mischief, unlawful possession of a controlled substance, unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia, attempting to elude law enforcement, resisting arrest, and third-degree domestic violence.
