Vermont State Police say a driver is in custody after leading troopers on a high-speed chase in which several cruisers were rammed and officers injured before he was shot.
Twenty-six-year-old Jeffrey Davis, of Johnson, allegedly failed to stop for police on Interstate 89 yesterday, rammed an Orange County Sheriff’s Department vehicle and three Vermont State Police cruisers and was hit by police gunfire on Route 14.
Police say he drove off again but was stopped by another trooper and surrendered without incident.
Davis sustained non-life threatening injuries. Officers from the Orange County Sheriff’s Department, Barre and Northfield police departments and the Vermont State Police – the number and names weren’t released – sustained minor injuries.
State Police spokeswoman Stephanie Dasaro says Davis will face numerous charges.
