BARABOO, Wis. (AP) - Police charged a Madison man with second-degree recklessly endangering safety, resisting an officer and driving with a revoked license after he tried to run down a Sauk County Sheriff’s deputy with his car, authorities said.

Sauk County prosecutors filed the charges Tuesday against Ernest Walker Holley, 45, the Baraboo News Republic (https://bit.ly/1qH6fXQ ) reported.

A criminal complaint detailing the incident says the deputy was outside a Lake Delton gas station on Sunday when a vehicle driven by Holley pulled up, nearly hitting a car as he attempted to park. Holley then backed his car up and accelerated directly into the same parked car containing several passengers, the deputy reported.

Holley “became very angry and belligerent and said that they knew each other and it was no big deal” when the deputy asked him about the collision, according to the complaint.

When the deputy went to check on the passengers in the parked car, Holley accelerated his car again and almost ran down the deputy, the complaint said. Holley refused to get out of his vehicle, so he had to be forcibly removed. The deputy said he was injured as he struggled with Holley during his arrest.

Holley is due back in court Friday. Court records don’t indicate whether he has an attorney.
