NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Authorities in Arkansas say three deputies responding to a house have been injured when they were attacked by a man who then stole a sheriff’s office SUV and slammed it into another law enforcement vehicle.

Pulaski County Jail records say that 51-year-old Jerry Dale York was being held without bond on a variety of complaints Sunday after allegedly stealing a sheriff’s office vehicle Saturday afternoon and leading authorities on a chase just outside North Little Rock. The complaints include two counts of criminal attempt to commit capital murder, battery and theft.


York is accused of attacking deputies at the residence where they had gone because someone was repeatedly calling 911. York then drove off in their vehicle and slammed into another sheriff’s office vehicle, which stopped the stolen SUV.

Officials say three deputies were treated for various injuries and released from a local hospital. They were not identified.
