Police in Baltimore County have charged a teenager with attempted second degree murder after he allegedly rammed a stolen minivan into a police car and attempted to run over an officer early Saturday.
Antonio Rashad Green, 16, was driving a 2003 white Dodge Caravan on Bristol and Stoneleigh Roads in Towson at about 1:27 a.m. when an officer stopped him, police said. Before the officer could get out of the car, the minivan reversed and banged into the front of the police car before speeding off, according to a police statement.
The officer pursued the minivan, which pulled into at driveway in the 6700 block of Maxalea Road and allegedly rammed into the police car once again. The police officer left his vehicle to try and arrest Green, who then tried to run over the officer, the report says.
Police said the officer fired multiple shots at Green.
Green allegedly crashed the vehicle, which police discovered was stolen, into a parked car in the 6700 block of Maxalea Road as he tried to speed away.
Police said he fled the scene and broke into a shed in the backyard of a home in the 6900 block of Sherwood Road where officers found him. Police arrested Green after a struggle.
Green was the only person in the minivan and was not hit by the officer's gunfire.
The police officer was transported to Greater Baltimore Medical Center for treatment from non-life threatening injuries. He was later released from the hospital.
Green, of the 1000 block of Woodson Road in Baltimore, has been charged as an adult with 11 counts including attempted second degree murder, assault on a law enforcement officer, resisting arrest, vehicle theft and fourth-degree burglary.
He is being held at the Baltimore County Detention Center on $500,000 bail.
