MANCHESTER, Conn. (AP) - A man accused of driving a car that struck three police officers in a parking lot is being held on $800,000 bond.

A Manchester Superior Court judge on Wednesday reduced the $1 million bond previously set for 52-year-old Kevin McNeilly of Manchester.

He faces charges of interfering with police, reckless driving and other offenses.

Police say the officers approached McNeilly on Tuesday in the parking lot of a Hampton Inn believing they were breaking up a drug deal.

Police say McNeilly hit the officers with his car before speeding off. He was caught and arrested nearby.

Police say McNeilly threw drugs out his window while being chased.

The officers were treated for bruising and released from Hartford Hospital.

A Manchester Superior Court clerk says McNeilly hasn’t been assigned a public defender yet.
