SummaryThe gray Dodge Ram pickup truck was stolen. The deputy continued to follow the Dodge when suddenly the suspect began driving erratically and forcing other vehicles off the road. Both vehicles came to rest in the grass on the east side of the road. The deputy exited his patrol car and advanced on foot toward the suspect who began revving the engine in an attempt to avoid apprehension, placing the deputy in danger of being run over. The deputy fired his department issued handgun at the suspect to stop the lethal threat.
