A Pennsylvania state trooper shot at a Jeep Cherokee after the driver tried to run from police and then rammed a trooper's car in York County on Tuesday at 1:50 a.m., according to state police.
Christian Hill, 25, of York, is charged with aggravated assault on a police officer, simple assault, recklessly endangering another person and other summary charges after the pursuit that ended with a foot chase.
Police said they were patrolling Route 30 near Hellam Township when they saw a silver Jeep Cherokee going 85 mph in a 55 mph zone.
Hill failed to pull over for police and continued going west, eventually pulling over at Round the Clock diner in Springettsbury Township, police said.
Hill didn't turn off the Jeep and refused commands from police, then hit a moving vehicle while leaving the parking lot, according to police.
Troopers then tapped the Jeep with the patrol car, causing it to spin around and stop near Route 30 and North George Street, but Hill then "rammed the driver side door of the patrol vehicle," police said.
The trooper who was getting out of the vehicle fired his gun, hitting the Jeep, according to police.
Hill drove for a short distance longer before the Jeep was disabled and then hopped out and tried to get away on foot, police said.
Police arrested Hill on Route 30 near the Susquehanna Trail. He was treated and taken into custody.
The trooper who fired his gun is on administrative leave, state police said.
According to court documents, Hill was arrested in 2016 and charged for manufacture, delivery or possession with intent to deliver and escape.
