Man charges at deputy with SUV, sheriff's office says

PORT RICHEY (FOX 13) -

A Pasco County deputy had a close call with an SUV during a wild chase through the streets of Port Richey.

It started in the 7100 block of Colfax in Port Richey. Deputies say a man and his neighbor were shooting at each other.

No one was hurt in the shootout, but they say the man who fired first drove off.

He was pulled over, and that's when they say he tried running over a sergeant.

"The suspect ignored and tried to go at full speed – tried to strike one of our vehicles," said Sheriff Chris Nocco. "He's going to be facing some serious criminal charges."

The sergeant was not hurt, and the suspect wasn't shot.

The man was eventually pulled over by another deputy near the McDonald's on U.S. 19 in Port Richey. He was taken into custody.

His name has not been released.
