KSAL StaffOctober 19, 2015

OLATHE, Kan. (AP) – A 59-year-old suburban Kansas City man faces charges accusing him of hitting two police officers with his car.

The officers weren’t seriously hurt in the incident Sunday in Overland Park.

The Kansas City Star reports Verton Tyrone Gee Sr. was charged in Johnson County District Court with theft and aggravated battery on a law enforcement officer.

Police say two officers were knocked to the ground by a car Gee was driving when they tried to stop him from leaving a store where a theft had been reported.

Gee’s being held on $250,000 bond. Online court records don’t list a lawyer for Gee.
