A Michigan man charged with four felonies after a high-speed chase in Hillsville that ended with the suspect ramming a Hillsville Police Department vehicle was indicted on five charges Monday by a Carroll County Grand Jury.

The department received a call about a reckless driver from the Carroll County Sheriff’s dispatch office at approximately 8 a.m. on April 10. The vehicle was reported to be on the U.S. 58 Bypass near the Route 52 Exit driving aggressively. HPD Officer Hunter Grubb responded to the call and met a 2016 Honda Accord near Motley Hill on South Main Street in Hillsville traveling at more than 30 miles over the posted speed limit, according to police reports at the time.

Officer Grubb, HPD officer Ricky Hayes and HPD Sgt. Alan Gravley then attempted to pull the vehicle over on U.S. 58 using lights and sirens, at which time the car continued westbound at a high rate of speed.

“The vehicle was using the emergency lane at times and traveling in the wrong lane of traffic from the Race-In to the Exit 14 and Interstate 77 interchange,” according to an HPD press release at the time. “During the time the vehicle was traveling west in the eastbound lane, the driver appeared to swerve at other vehicles they met. The vehicle turned into the Cockerham’s Truck Stop with officers in pursuit. The officers attempted to stop the vehicle in the truck stop lot, at which time it attempted to ram Officer Hayes and Sgt. Gravley. The pursuit ended when the driver rammed Officer Grubb’s patrol car in the driver’s side, disabling both vehicles. Officer Hayes and Sgt. Gravley then arrested the driver without further incident or injury.”
