Lexington Man Accused Of Driving Vehicle At Officer

Posted: Updated:

LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — A Lexington man is facing several charges after being accused by police of driving a vehicle toward an officer who was approaching the car.

Police say 32-year-old Thomas E. Oxendine was arrested after the incident, which happened early Friday morning.

According to an arrest report, an officer observed a vehicle in the 600 block of North Martin Luther King Boulevard that had occupants but no lights on.

The police officer says that as he approached the car, the driver could be seen moving his hands. The officer said he shouted several times commanding the person to stop.

At that point, according to the arrest report, the driver put the vehicle into gear, "turned the wheels toward my position" and drove toward the officer "almost striking me with the vehicle."

Oxendine was later arrested. He faces one count of first-degree wanton endangerment of a police officer, one count of first-degree fleeing or evading police with a motor vehicle, third-degree assault of a police officer, one count of no operator's license and one count of parole violation.

Oxendine was being held in the Fayette County Detention Center.
