Decatur Police announced the arrest of Quincey Wilkerson on a multitude of charges which include reckless endangerment after they said he used his car to ram a police patrol car.

He is in the Morgan County Jail without bond.

According to police, a Decatur officer tried pulling over a car with an expired tag and cracked windshield.

Instead of stopping, the officer said the car sped off before the driver pulled into a nearby driveway.

At that point the passenger jumped out and ran.

According to police, the driver of the car - identified as Wilkerson - then used his car to back into the officer's patrol car.

Police said Wilkerson's car hit a fence and at that point the officer was able to pull him from the car.

The officer discovered Wilkerson with marijuana, drug paraphernalia, prescription medication, and a loaded pistol.

He is forbidden from possessing a pistol due to a past offense.

In addition to the reckless endangerment charges, Wilkerson is charged with having an expired tag, no insurance, driving while suspended, attempting to flee and elude, criminal mischief in the third degree, possession of drug paraphernalia, and illegal possession of prescription medication.
