When police received a call around 5 a.m., the caller advised dispatchers that he was in need of police service and was being chased by unknown subjects for the past two hours.
When officers responded to the area, they attempted to gather information of where the cell phone information was coming from and worked to try to find the vehicle.
One officer found a suspicious vehicle and the driver of that vehicle tried to run over the police officer. Officers followed the vehicle to the BP Gas Station on Park Road and Alsobrook Street in Plant City. According to police, the vehicle's tires were deflated in an attempt to disable it. After the vehicle's tires were deflated, the driver failed to stop the vehicle and crashed. Officers then surrounded the vehicle and instructed the driver to get out and show his hands.
