Deputy shoots at driver, 15, after vehicle strikes him
GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) — Authorities say a police officer in South Carolina fired at a car after he was struck by a 15-year-old behind the wheel as it sped away.
Greenville County sheriff's investigator Sean Zukowsky said the deputy suffered a minor leg injury and investigators don't have any indication that anyone was struck by the officer's bullets.
Zukowsky said the deputy was checking on a suspicious car around 4:30 a.m. Sunday on U.S. Highway 29 in Taylors when the driver started the engine and drove at the officer.
Zukowsky said in a statement the deputy ordered the driver to stop and fired his gun after he was hit in the leg.
Deputies said a 15-year-old boy was arrested Monday and charged with attempted murder and resisting arrest. His name wasn't released.
