As officers approached the vehicle, the driver, Ryan Carrell, 41, pulled out of the lot and struck officer Brandon Reaman, who suffered minor injuries, Birk said.

Police pursued the vehicle throughout the area, stopping it on Seven Mile Road after using tire deflation devices. K-9 Bear chased down Carrell as he ran away. Carrell suffered dog bites to his right arm and was treated for those minor injuries, Birk said.

Carrell was charged with felonious assault on a police officer, fleeing and eluding, drug abuse/meth, drug instruments and reckless operation.

The passenger, Alisha Bond, 35, had warrants for theft out of Hamilton, according to officials.

Because the Middletown City Jail is closed while it is being painted, Carrell and Bond were taken to the Butler County Jail.
