ENID — An Enid man was arrested early Wednesday after being accused by police of trying to shoot an officer at close range.
Two Enid police officers attempted to pull over Johnny Ross, 21, for a traffic violation early Wednesday.
As one of the officers approached the car, Ross sped off and led police on a chase for several minutes until he crashed into a ditch.
As the officer approached the car again, Ross got out and pointed a gun at the officers and attempted to fire it, according to a news release. The gun did not fire, and the officers were able to get the gun from him and place him in handcuffs. Police said they believe the gun did not fire because the safety was still on.
The officers then found a small bag of marijuana in Ross’s pocket, according to a news release.
Ross was arrested on numerous complaints, including attempted murder and possession of marijuana.
