RAVEN (WVVA)--- A sheriff's deputy is hit by a car while trying to make an arrest late Saturday night in Tazewell County.

Major Harold Heatley of the Tazewell County Sheriff's Office says 33-year-old William McNew has been arrested with multiple charges.

Police say that McNew left the scene of a domestic incident where sheriff's deputies were looking for him. While deputies were questioning neighbors, McNew pulled into a nearby driveway.

Deputy Jonathan Caldwell approached the vehicle and told McNew to get out of the car.

McNew refused and police say that he refused to acknowledge the deputies presence. While Deputy Caldwell knocked on the window, McNew looked at the deputy, turned the steering wheel towards him and hit the gas.

Deputy Caldwell was tossed to the ground and in the process fired his weapon. The shot went through the rear drivers side window and did not hit McNew.

McNew fled the scene and abandoned the vehicle but was later found at the original address.

Caldwell was treated and released from a local hospital with minor injuries.

McNew is being charged with attempted Capitol Murder, DUI, Refusal, Driving Suspended DUI and additional charges are pending. He is in Southwest Virginia Regional Jail Authority without bond
