18-year-old faces numerous charges after domestic dispute, hitting police car
OKLAHOMA CITY – An 18-year-old man is facing a series of charges after allegedly hitting a police car following a domestic argument.
Officers drove to a 7-Eleven after receiving a call that a man was running around with a knife and broke out the window to a truck in a nearby neighborhood.
When police arrived at the 7-Eleven, they couldn’t find anyone involved in the incident.
As officers were driving to the apartment where the incident occurred, they came upon a car heading straight toward their police car.
According to the police affidavit, the officer swerved as far right as possible to avoid getting hit.
However, it wasn’t enough to avoid a crash.
The car swiped the driver’s side of the police car and fled the scene.
Authorities say the car drove over the sidewalk back into the parking lot of the apartment complex and then headed through the east gate.
As officers chased the vehicle, the car hit a parked truck.
Police were able to take 18-year-old Justin Albert Warledo into custody.
According to the report, witnesses say Warledo was arguing with his brother inside an apartment before chasing people out of the home with a kitchen knife.
Officials also learned that he allegedly stole the keys to one of the victims’ cars.
Warledo is now charged with assault with a deadly weapon, unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, leaving the scene of an accident, reckless driving, no state driver’s license, destroying private property, speeding in a residential area and failure to keep right of center.
