MOUNTAIN HOME — Arkansas authorities have charged a man after a police pursuit that left both the man and an officer injured.

The Baxter Bulletin reported that 53-year-old Rory Gregory is charged with aggravated assault, fleeing, theft and resisting arrest using force.

Mountain Home police say officer Larry Caruso pursued Gregory's truck Saturday night along U.S. 62 because of a suspected theft.

Police say Gregory rammed the officer's car. They say Caruso got out to arrest Gregory, who tried to run over the officer. Police say Caruso punched out the truck's driver's-side window and managed to stop the vehicle.

Caruso suffered minor cuts on his arms.

Gregory was treated at a hospital before being booked into the Baxter County jail in lieu of $1 million bond. Online jail records didn't indicate an attorney.

Sharp is busy standing up for the rights of cigar thieves.
