CORSICANA, TX (KXXV) -

A 58-year-old man was arrested on Sunday night for multiple felonies after he attempted to flee police officers and slammed his vehicle into a police unit.

Around 9:15 p.m., a Corsicana police officer arrived at the Tiger Tote gas station located at 1950 Martin Luther King Blvd. and made contact with the suspect, Harry Don Nicholson.

The officer discovered Nicholson had active warrants out of Van Zandt County. Backup officers were called when the officer was searching his information because Nicholson could be considered dangerous. 

Nicholson then walked toward his vehicle while ignoring the officer’s commands to stop.

Police said the officer engaged in a physical altercation with Nicholson. Nicholson broke loose and entered his vehicle and started the ignition as the officer was attempting to forcefully remove him.

The officer let go of the suspect and jumped out of the way when Nicholson put his vehicle in reverse.

Nicholson then attempted to flee the scene at the same time multiple Corsicana police units arrived and surrounded the vehicle. He continued to attempt to flee and intentionally struck a police unit causing his vehicle to stop.

Nicholson was forcefully removed by officers at gunpoint.

He was taken to the Navarro County Jail and charged with multiple felonies, including aggravated assault against a public servant, evading arrest or detention with a vehicle, resisting arrest search or transport, possession of drug paraphernalia and two warrants out of Van Zandt County for resisting arrest, search or transport and evading arrest or detention with a vehicle.

His bond was set at $200,000.

Corsicana police said the department they will be seeking restitution for the damages and filing for seizure on the vehicle that was driven by the suspect.

No officers were injured in the incident.

U.S. President Donald Trump speaks with Russian President Vladimir Putin during a press conference after their meeting at the Presidential Palace in Helsinki, Finland, Monday, July 16, 2018.

    Standing alongside Putin, Trump steered clear of any confrontation with the Russian, going so far as to question American intelligence and last week's federal indictments that accused 12 Russians of hacking into Democratic email accounts to hurt Hillary Clinton in 2016.
