LORMAN, Miss. (AP) — A man who crashed his car trying to evade police in Mississippi sped off in and wrecked a police car — then returned to the site in a third vehicle to shoot at deputies.

WLBT-TV reports that Jefferson County Sheriff’s deputies later captured Peter Robinson using search dogs. None of the shots hit anyone.

The TV station quoted Sheriff Peter Walker as saying that Robinson is charged with aggravated assault on a police officer, felony taking a motor vehicle and possessing drugs with intent to distribute following Saturday’s episode. Walker said deputies found marijuana, about $2,000, knives and pills in Robinson’s car.

It wasn’t clear whether Robinson had an attorney. A call and email from The Associated Press to the sheriff’s office were not returned Sunday.
