Man Jailed For Ramming Truck Into Deputies’ Cars

TRINITY, Fla. (AP) — A Tampa Bay-area man has been arrested for allegedly ramming his truck into two Pasco County Sheriff’s Office patrol cars.

Sheriff’s office spokeswoman Melanie Snow says deputies responded late Monday to reports about a truck driving erratically in Trinity.

Snow says deputies pursued 46-year-old Christopher Conti for a few miles until he rammed his truck into two patrol cars. Conti then allegedly attempted to ram into two other patrol cars.

No one was injured. Snow says Conti was charged with two counts aggravated battery against a law enforcement officer and two counts aggravated assault with a vehicle.

Jail records did not list Conti’s hometown or show whether he had an attorney. Snow says drugs were found in Conti’s vehicle, and he faces additional charges.
