A man who almost hit a Robertson County deputy's patrol car while fleeing the scene after a possible fight on Clarence Murphy Road has been arrested in Kentucky, according to authorities.

In a news release, the Robertson County Sheriff's Office said Phoenix Dunn almost hit the first patrol car to arrive on the scene on Clarence Murphy Road as he was leaving. Deputies said Dunn jumped out of the vehicle after reaching Highway 41 North and ran into a wooded area.

Robertson County authorities searched the area with a K9 and requested help from the Tennessee Highway Patrol helicopter.

Dunn is facing charges of aggravated assault, domestic assault, reckless endangerment, evading arrest, violation of stop-frisk-halt, leaving the scene of an accident, theft of a car, reckless driving and multiple citations.
