Man arrested after ramming police vehicles, officers shoot out tires

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- Louisville Metro Police arrested a man they said rammed into several police vehicles early Friday morning near Iroquois Park, forcing an officer to fire on the suspect's vehicle.

On October 11, the Bullitt County Drug Task Force attempted to arrest Brandon Keeling, 32, during an investigation. Keeling drove away, struck a narcotics vehicle and fled.

Detectives were able to locate Keeling on the evening of October 13, and they requested assistance from LMPD.

Keeling was taken into custody after being checked by EMS for minor injuries.

Handguns, meth, heroin, digital scales and over $4,000 were recovered.
