A Virginia man assaulted customers at a supermarket before leading police on a car chase through Bedford County, Virginia, officials said.
After police arrived, authorities said the man, later identified as 26-year-old Jeffrey Ray Johnson II, fled the scene in his vehicle.
Officers chased Johnson throughout the north end of Bedford County, but thanks to tire deflation devices, Johnson’s vehicle broke down and he was taken into custody after a short struggle, police said.
Johnson has been charged with eluding police, assault on law enforcement, possession of drugs, transportation of firearm while under a protective order, possession of a firearm with drugs, driving under the influence and driving suspended, authorities said.
Police said the investigation is still pending, so other charges may still be added.
Johnson was booked into the Bedford Adult Detention Center and is being held on no bond, police said.
