Two suspects intentionally hit two Knox County Sheriff’s Office cruisers during a chase.

It happened yesterday (Thursday) morning near Harbison’s Crossroads in North Knox County and both cruisers had officers in the car at the time.

Officers reportedly tried to stop two people in a stolen Jeep Cherokee when they refused to stop. After hitting the two cruisers, one of the suspects called 911 and said he “had a gun and would kill any officer that stopped him” leading police on a pursuit.

The two suspects, identified as Lawrence Huffman Jr. and Ashley Collins, were arrested. Collins is wanted out of Michigan. Both suspects were charged with theft, motor vehicle theft, evading arrest, aggravated assault, fugitive from justice and two cases of aggravated assault.
