Md. Driver Backs Pickup Truck Over Police Car
FREDERICK, Md. (AP) — A Middletown man faces charges of drunk driving and other offenses after he alleged rammed another vehicle and then backed his pickup truck onto the hood of a police cruiser.
Brian Head, 26, was released on $10,000 bond after the incident early Sunday morning in downtown Frederick.
Witnesses told police that Head followed a Volkswagen Cabriolet after arguing with the driver in a tavern parking lot.
Police say he rammed the VW from behind, pushing it into a utility pole, and then accelerated rapidly in reverse onto the hood of Sgt. Matthew Burns’ unmarked police cruiser. The Ford F-250 pickup came to a stop resting atop the police car.
Police say Head apparently wasn’t aware that Sgt. Burns was stopped behind him.
Head couldn’t be reached for comment.
