CHULA VISTA (CNS) - A 30-year-old man was behind bars Sunday after ramming his vehicle into a sheriff's patrol car while attempting to evade police.
San Diego sheriff's deputies had arrived at Adam Heid's doorstep to serve him an arrest warrant about 8:20 p.m. Saturday in Chula Vista, but he ran, Sheriff's Lt. David Gilmore said.
Heid jumped into his car, rammed it into a patrol vehicle, and crashed into his own garage, Gilmore said.
The deputy's patrol car sustained minor damage and no injuries were reported.
Heid was booked into jail on numerous charges including evading police, vandalism and driving on the wrong direction of a highway while fleeing police.
He was being held on $309,000 bail and was scheduled to be arraigned Thursday at 1:30 p.m. in the Chula Vista courthouse, according to court records.
