A traffic stop early Sunday morning turns out to be anything but routine. A state trooper pulls his gun on another driver after the second driver rear ended the trooper's vehicle and then tried to run down the enforcement officer with his truck.
A standard traffic stop for speeding quickly turned serious this morning; Leading to shots fired and an arrest. Around 2:30 this morning, an Ohio State Highway Trooper stopped a speeding driver heading north on State Route 501, near Buckland- Holden Road.
At about the same time another driver driving a pickup truck, 27-year-old John Williams, slammed into the back of the patrol car. Williams's truck ended up in a nearby bean field.
Troopers say Williams then tried leaving the scene by driving directly at the patrolman. After several attempts to stop Williams, the trooper pulled his weapon and fired one shot. Williams then got out of his truck and tried running away on foot. But not before he was arrested and charged with operating a vehicle while intoxicated and will likely face more charges.
The driver that was originally pulled over for speeding, as well as the trooper on the scene were not hurt.
