CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - Authorities say a driver fleeing from a drug investigation in Casper rammed a police car and two other vehicles before he was apprehended.

Investigators say 41-year-old Jason Paul Prudhomme was arrested Tuesday on drug and traffic charges.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports (https://tinyurl.com/plgufbs ) officers tried to pull Prudhomme over as part of the drug investigation. Authorities say Prudhomme rammed a police car and another vehicle before colliding with a sport-utility vehicle in south Casper, where he was arrested.

Authorities say Prudhomme suffered minor injuries. No one else was hurt.

Prudhomme was being held in the Natrona County jail on charges of possession of methamphetamine, intent to deliver, conspiracy, eluding law enforcement, leaving the scene of an accident and driving while under suspension.

Jail records didn’t indicate whether he has an attorney.
