COOS BAY, Ore. (AP) - A Coos County Sheriff’s Office deputy was injured during an arrest after a man rammed his van in reverse into the deputy’s patrol vehicle.

The World reported (https://bit.ly/2fhhqK6 ) Tuesday that the deputy whose name has not been released was following a suspected stolen van when the vehicle led him on a slow speed pursuit. The Sheriff’s Office states the deputy was about to make contact with the van when it reversed into the deputy’s vehicle.

The deputy was taken to a nearby hospital where he was treated and released.

The Sheriff’s Office states the suspect was found after a nearby resident reported that a firearm was stolen from their house. Authorities searched the residence and found 30-year-old Daniel Farnum hiding in a back room.

Farnum was arrested and charged with multiple felonies, including burglary.
