March 18, 2012
San Luis Obispo police arrested a 24-year-old man for allegedly attempting to run his car into a police officer Saturday at about 6 p.m.
Two officers on bicycles first attempted to stop Brian Lima of King City for driving erratically on Nipomo Street near the SLO Children’s Museum. Lima then fled from the officers and turned onto a dead-end portion of Dana Street.
After one of the officers stepped off of his bike and motioned Lima to pull over, Lima attempted to run over the officer who was able to jump out of the way.
Police later took Lima into custody without further incident on Toro Street.
Police booked Lima into San Luis Obispo County Jail on charges of assault with a deadly weapon against an officer, driving under the influence and reckless driving with bail set at $50,000.
