BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (AP) - A 21-year-old man who is accused of shooting at a Battle Creek police officer during a traffic stop has been arrested.

The Battle Creek Enquirer reports (https://bcene.ws/1RvaJdr ) Sunday that the man could face assault with intent to murder charges.

He was found hiding Saturday night in the basement of a home that police had surrounded for several hours.

Major Jim Grafton says the man was stopped for speeding about 3:15 p.m. Saturday when a shot was fired at an officer.

The officer returned fire. Police chased the vehicle until the driver stopped and ran inside a house. He remained inside until officers and a police dog entered about 7 p.m. The dog bit the man on his arm.

Police later learned the man was driving on a suspended license.
