ADA, Okla. – Authorities say a man is being charged with multiple felonies after police say he tried to run over an officer.

The situation began in August at the Rain Tree Inn after officers learned that someone was violating a victim’s protection order.

“Once they were there, they ran his name and found warrants in a different county,” said Lisa Bratcher, with the City of Ada.

Authorities say they tried to arrest 33-year-old Gregory James Harbin, but he was not going without a fight.

“They were struggling to get him out of the car, they were trying to wrestle him out,” said Cassidy Cantrell.

City officials say Harbin was trying to drive off in an older model SUV.

“At that point, he struck one of our officers. Shots were fired and the suspect was hit. After that, the suspect fled the scene,” said Bratcher.

“All of a sudden, I hear ‘boom, boom, boom’ and four more shots. There were a total of eight shots fired off,” said Jeremy Young.

Officers say Harbin led police on a chase, circling several streets before stopping near Francis and Orchard.

“He surrendered to officers at that time, I believe, because he was hurt,” said Bratcher.

Harbin has since been charged with felony counts of eluding a police officer, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and trafficking drugs.
