A man is being held in Carson City after allegedly trying to run down a deputy in a parking lot.
20-year-old Jamie Wise was arrested Saturday evening on
suspicion of felony assault with a deadly weapon on a peace officer
and misdemeanor possession of a hypodermic device.
Deputies responded to a report of someone trying to kick in an
apartment door. As deputies Brian Mays and Doug Speegle pulled into
the complex parking lot, two vehicles were backing out quickly from
parking spaces in front of the building. The deputies used their
vehicle to block the exit of one of them.
The report says Wise drove toward Mays at a high speed, forcing
Mays to jump out of the way.
Wise then allegedly tried to flee and drove toward the other
deputy before ramming a patrol vehicle and becoming stuck.
He's being held on 20-thousand dollars bail.
