HARTFORD, Conn. (Associated Press) — Connecticut State Police say a man has been arrested after attempting to run over a police officer while fleeing the scene of an assault at a casino.

The Record-Journal reports police say 22-year-old Justin Eccleston, of Meriden, Connecticut, was charged Saturday with reckless driving, second-degree reckless endangerment, engaging in police pursuit, driving under the influence and other violations.

State police say Eccleston fled from tribal police who were investigating an assault at Mohegan Sun Casino. They say he attempted to run over the officer while leaving the casino.

Troopers pursued Eccleston on the highway, reaching speeds of more than 100 miles per hour.

They say Eccleston struck a tree in Lebanon.
