A Maine man is in trouble after he allegedly assaulted a Cumberland County Sheriff's deputy with the door of his vehicle and then fled the scene.

According to WGME, 29 year old Zachary Laney, of Bridgton, was pulled over on the Naples causeway on Sunday for multiple violations.  The article explains that Laney was reportedly uncooperative and refused to give the deputy that stopped him any information.

After he had had enough, the deputy attempted to take Laney into custody.  That is when Laney allegedly fled the scene of the stop.  As he did, he allegedly hit the deputy with the door of his vehicle.

Fortunately, the deputy only suffered a few scrapes and bruises.  He was treated at Maine Medical Center and released.

Meanwhile, deputies gave chase through several towns including Denmark and Sebago.  The article explains:

According to deputies, spike mats were set up at the intersection of Hancock Pond Road and Route 107 in Sebago, which deflated both front tires.

Eventually, the vehicle stopped on Folley Road in Sebago.

Laney is being held at the Cumberland County Jail without bail and he has been charged with numerous crimes including assault on an officer, operating after suspension, refusing to stop for a law enforcement officer, violation of conditions of release, and refusing to submit to arrest or detention
