Sheriff: Man who rammed patrol car taken into custody

BOISE, Idaho (KBOI) -- Police say they have apprehended a man who rammed an Ada County Sheriff's deputy patrol car with a stolen van, authorities said Tuesday.

The Ada County Sheriff's Office says deputies found Scott Davis on Burntwood Court Tuesday evening after searching for him most of the afternoon.  The sheriff's office says that they deployed a taser to stop him.

Deputies say Davis is a suspect in the theft of the van, which was taken from a home on Linder Drive Sunday night or early Monday morning.

The van was located Tuesday morning at a home near Five Mile Road and Edna Street, the sheriff says. When deputies approached the house, they say Davis ran outside to the van a drove away, ramming into a deputy's patrol car in the process.

After he slammed into the partrol car, the sheriff says, Davis took off on foot in the Five Mile and McMillan area.

The sheriff's office says Davis has an extensive criminal history, including past charges of forgery, gran theft, aggravated assault or battery on a law enforcement officer and eluding arrest.
