GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Greenville County deputies said a man was charged with attempted murder and a list of charges after intentionally ramming at least one patrol car while driving a stolen SUV.

Deputies said they were called around 11:40 a.m. Wednesday by someone who had spotted a Nissan Pathfinder that had previously been reported stolen.

Deputies caught up with the vehicle at the intersection of Pleasantburg Drive and Keith Drive and tried to box in the vehicle. At that time, the driver of the Pathfinder intentionally struck at least one of the patrol cars, according to Sgt. Ryan Flood.

“Deputies were eventually able to get the suspect in custody and located a firearm in his possession, in addition to methamphetamine,” Flood said. 

No one was hurt in the collision.

Deputies  on Thursday identified the suspect as Carlos Mauricio Hernandez, 36. He is charged with attempted murder, possession of a stolen vehicle, unlawful possession of a firearm, possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine, possession of a weapon during a violent crime, driving under suspension, and habitual offender.
