SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KSFY) - A Sioux Falls man is facing charges after police say he attempted to run over officers and then drove erratically around the city.
Thirty-five-year-old Phillip Hislaw was arrested Wednesday afternoon.
The incident began when officers attempted to arrest Hislaw for absconding on his parole, according to Sgt. Jason Gearman of the Minnehaha Co. Sheriff's Office. As deputies approached him in a van outside an apartment complex on N. Cliff Avenue, Hislaw tried backing over two officers, then nearly hit a third as he drove away. Gearman says one of the deputies fired a shot toward Hislaw during the incident.
Sioux Falls police soon joined in the search for Hislaw.
Police received several reports of Hislaw driving erratically in the southwest part of town. He allegedly sideswiped a vehicle near 57th Street and Solberg Ave.
Authorities eventually found Hislaw in his van near 50th St. and Western Ave. after his van got a flat tire. He was taken into custody.
No one was hurt during any of these encounters.
Police say Hislaw had meth in his possession.
Hislaw faces several charges, including three counts of aggravated assault on law enforcement and reckless driving.
