On Monday around 9 p.m., Gainesville police were called to Browns Bridge Road and Pearl Nix Parkway.
Before arriving, 911 callers reportedly stated that a white Dodge Charger was sitting in the middle of the road and the callers were concerned for the driver’s well-being.
When officers contacted the driver, identified as James Edward Harrison, 39, of Jefferson, police say he immediately became non-compliant.
Authorities said when officers tried to help Harrison, he refused all commands.
As officers tried to de-escalate the situation, officials said this was when Harrison put his car in gear and rammed two patrol cars.
