SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - A 35-year-old man is facing various charges including aggravated assault after ramming a sports utility vehicle into a police cruiser in southeast South Dakota.

Police in Sioux Falls say James Dean Dubro was pulled over for a routine traffic stop, but before the police officer could get out of his vehicle, Dubro put the SUV in reverse and hit the cruiser. Police say Dubro was trying to get the cruiser out of the way.

Dubro sped away and the officer drove after him, but the pursuit ended shortly after Dubro drove into a trailer park and residents began to exit their homes.

Dubro was arrested hours later at a Dell Rapids home. He’s in jail without bond. It’s unclear whether he has an attorney.

The cruiser’s estimated damage is $600.
