FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - Authorities say a North Texas police officer remains hospitalized following a traffic accident while pursuing a driver suspected of pointing a gun at another vehicle.

Fort Worth police spokesman Officer Brad Perez says the suspect, 21-year-old Christopher Anderson, was being held Monday on charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, evading arrest and unlawful possession of a firearm.

Anderson was arrested after Sunday’s wreck that injured two Fort Worth officers. Perez says one officer remained hospitalized Monday while the other was discharged. Details on the officers weren’t released.

Police say Anderson was arrested after a foot chase. Perez didn’t immediately have details on bond or a lawyer to speak for Anderson.
