Ayden Man Charged With Trying To Hit Officers During Chase

A man who was supposed to be on house arrest is accused of trying to run down two Greenville police officers and leading them on a chase overnight.

Robert Cogdell of Ayden is facing 11 charges, including several counts of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, resisting, felony flee/elude arrest and reckless driving to endanger.

Sgt. Joe Friday says Cogdell is accused of stealing his mother's vehicle last night, and officers located him at Myrtle and Carolina avenues. Police tried to pull over the vehicle and that's when the chase began. Friday says during the chase he tried to hit two officers in their cruisers.

The chase ended at Chestnut Street and Line Avenue when the vehicle hit a fire hydrant and a stop sign. Cogdell was injured and taken to Vidant Medical Center for his injuries.

Bond for the 25 year old man was set at $165,000.
