LEWISBURG, W.Va. (AP) - Police in West Virginia say a Baltimore teenager has been charged with striking a police cruiser with his vehicle.

Records at the Southern Regional Jail in Beaver show 19-year-old Joshua Jerome Brown was being held without bond Monday on one count each of attempted murder and reckless fleeing.

A statement from Lewisburg police says Brown was speeding early Saturday on U.S. Route 60.

Media outlets report that after Brown’s car was stopped, an officer jumped to avoid getting hit when Brown took off again. Brown’s car struck the rear driver’s side of the cruiser. The police statement says the officer was uninjured.

Lewisburg Police Chief Tim Stover says Brown later surrendered.

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