HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) — A Pennsylvania man has been charged with assaulting a Maryland State trooper after he hit a cruiser trying to run away from them in a van.

According to The Herald-Mail of Hagerstown, Washington County District Court records show that troopers had gone to Premium Outlets in Hagerstown this week for reports of counterfeit money being passed. Police approached a van that had been linked to a suspect.

The court documents state that a trooper told the van driver to hand over the keys, but the driver pulled off.

Records indicate troopers pulled up next to the van, which hit the cruiser’s fender, jumped a curb and hit several trees.

Tyreik Gibson, 28, of Lansdowne, Pa., was arrested and charged with assault on a law enforcement officer and other offenses.
