A 25-year-old Waynesboro, Pa., man was charged after he allegedly led police on a chase Friday and tried to hit a pursuing Waynesboro police car, Maryland State Police said.

The chase began Friday about 5:30 p.m. when Timothy Allen Geesaman, 25, allegedly fled from a Waynesboro police officer who tried to stop his 1991 Ford Ranger to investigate a domestic incident and erratic driving, Maryland State Police said in a news release.

Officers from state police and the Washington County Sheriff's Department joined the chase, which continued on back road in Maryland. Police said Geesaman allegedly tried to ram a Waynesboro police officer and veered off the road several times during the pursuit. The chase ended after Geesaman's Ranger became disabled on Battletown Road, police said.

While Geesaman was being processed at the state police barrack in Hagerstown, he allegedly assaulted the trooper trying to arrest him, police said.
