2 in custody after CMPD officer is hit by car; suspect tries to flee

- Two people are in police custody after a man with warrants out for his arrest hit a CMPD officer with his car and tried to flee. 

Officers say they had made contact with the man on S. Linwood Ave. in northeast Charlotte when he got into a car, hit the officer and tried to flee.

The officer was okay and did not need to be transported to the hospital. 

The car eventually ran off of the road on Exchange St. where the driver got out of the car and ran while a female passenger in the car was detained. It is not clear if charges will be filed against her. 

The driver was caught by a K-9 unit in the woods off of Exchange St.
