The Lee County Sheriff’s Office has arrested a man they say fled from a traffic stop and crashed head-on with a deputy’s cruiser on Thursday.
Deputies say they arrested 40-year-old Roderick Allison Thursday night after trying to stop him for speeding through a neighborhood without lights on.
The sheriff’s office says Allison didn’t stop and instead fled from them, eventually crashing head-on with an LSCO patrol vehicle.
Deputies say Allison had a loaded handgun on the passenger seat of his car.
He is facing charges of aggravated battery on an officer, attempting to flee from law enforcement, driving without a license, and possession of a weapon by a convicted felon.
Allison is being held on a $70,750 bond.
