The van ran through a fence and crashed near a cemetery in rural Pulaski County. Sheriff Jim Davis says the driver got out of the van and fired a round that struck the deputy's windshield. About five rounds were exchanged before the man fled into nearby woods. The sheriff says the man turned himself in -after a state police helicopter made a few passes over the area. NO one was injured. Passengers in the van were also charged.
