BRISTOW, Va. (WUSA) -- A man has turned himself in to police for an incident involving fleeing from officers in a car and then on foot on Sunday in Bristow, say Prince William County police officials.
According to police, 22-year-old Javon Jerome Gross was driving a vehicle that left the scene of a report of a person brandishing a firearm at a resident on Tulane Falls Drive. Police say the vehicle did not have on its headlights when it left the scene, accelerated and headed towards officers' vehicles, say police. Officers believed the driver intentionally tried to hit the patrol cars. The officers moved in order to avoid colliding with the vehicle.
Police say the vehicle then went down to the dead end of Emery Fall Court and was pursued by officers. The driver fled on foot and officers, with help from the Fairfax County Police helicopter and K-9 unit, tried to find him without success, according to police.
Two other people in the car were arrested after giving false information to officers, say police.
Gross turned himself in two days later and was charged with two counts of attempted malicious wounding of a law enforcement officer and driving on a revoked license.
