Man faces attempted murder of police officer charge

Corey Bushell's problems with the law grew dramatically when he elected not to hang around for an approaching officer.

Bushnell, 31 of 230 Jennifer was spotted at a gasoline station Saturday afternoon by an officer who know there were outstanding City Court warrants for the suspect.

As the officer approached, Bushnell got in his vehicle and fled, driving into a whole bunch of trouble.

Bushell, police say, refused to obey orders to stop and at one pont ran his car head-on into a police patrol unit. He then tried to flee on foot but was quickly apprehended.

He was being sought on warrants for simple assault, discharging a firearm in the city, aggravated assault and disturbing the peace.

Now he faces one very big count -- attempted second-degree murder of a police officer, in addition to chages of three counts of resisting arrest, disobeying a stop sign, no seat belt, no driver's license, and aggravated flight from an officer.
