PARIS, TN (WSMV) -

A Nashville man is accused of striking a Paris police officer with his car.

Thelma Easley was arrested Sunday after the Paris Police Department said he was in his car in the parking lot outside a Paris restaurant, screaming, with a Bible taped to his chest.

When officers tried to get Easley to come out of the car, he allegedly backed the vehicle into Officer Ryan French.

Easley is now charged with aggravated assault on an officer, evading arrest and driving on a suspended license.

Authorities said French was examined by medical personnel and is OK.
