A Perry police officer fired four shots at a stolen car suspect and wounded him.
Then the suspect drove all the way to metro Atlanta on Interstate 75 before being arrested.
All that is according to a Perry Police Department news release.
They say it happened around 9:20 p.m. Saturday on Highway 41 south, the Marshallville Highway, where four officers tried to stop a reported stolen car.
The release says the driver tried to run them down.
That's when Officer Jeff Keenom fired the shots and struck 23-year-old Brian Lucas, the driver.
The release says Lucas led officers on a chase through several counties before being arrested. He was treated at a Riverdale hospital.
Perry police say Lucas is in the Clayton County jail, charged with motor vehicle theft, aggravated assault on police officer and fleeing and attempting to elude.
