Man Steals Truck, Tries to Run Over Deputy: Police

Police across North Texas are searching for a man who almost ran over a sheriff's deputy with a stolen truck, police say.

Kyle Wayne Green, 39, was suspected of stealing a truck in Gregg County in East Texas on Thursday.

Police later found the stolen truck on Highway 64 near Tyler, Texas using the vehicle's GPS. When a sheriff's deputy arrived at the scene, Green jumped into the truck and drove straight at the deputy, according to police. The deputy jumped out of the way as Green drove off.

Green is believed to have abandoned the first truck, stole another, and abandoned the second vehicle in Kaufman County.

Police are still searching for Green, and there is no word where he may be heading.

A warrant was issued for Aggravate Assault on a Public Servant and anyone with information on Green is asked to call the Rusk County Crime Stoppers at 903-655-TIPP (8477).
