Police arrested a man early Saturday they said tried to run down an officer in a Krispy Kreme drive-through.

Randy Lee Jones, 50, was allegedly driving without headlights Friday in the Paragon Mills area when Officer Colin Feeney tried to pull him over. Jones sped away, according to his arrest warrant.

Several minutes later, the warrant said, Feeney saw Jones' white truck run a red light and then pull into the Krispy Kreme on Thompson Lane. Feeney walked down the drive-through in an attempt to stop Jones.

"As I walked down the drive-thru, the white truck came towards me," Feeney reported in the affidavit. "I gave the driver verbal commands to stop, and the driver accelerated the vehicle."

Feeney had to push off of the truck as it sped toward him, the warrant said. His hand was cut when it hit the passenger side mirror.

When police arrested Jones, he was sweating and swaying, according to his warrant. They found cocaine in his truck.

Police charged him with aggravated assault of an officer, DUI, drug possession, driving on a revoked license, evading arrest and violation of implied consent. He is in jail on a $48,000 bond.

Jones is a felon who has been found guilty of DUI, domestic assault and several counts of theft and forgery.
