GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) — A man has been arrested after he drove his car into a sheriff’s deputy’s vehicle in North Carolina.

News outlets report no one was hurt in the wreck Tuesday in Forsyth County.

Twenty-four-year-old Alexander Jared Franklin of Kernersville has been charged with assaulting a government employee, assault with a deadly weapon, possession of a gun by a felon and several other charges.

The sheriff’s office said Franklin was accused of firing a gun in Davidson County and had been involved in a dispute in Guilford County.

He was arrested after deputies say he was arguing with a construction crew and then drove into a responding officer’s vehicle.

Franklin’s first court appearance is scheduled June 28. It was not known if he has an attorney yet.
