MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Authorities say a 33-year-old Tennessee man accused of running over and seriously injuring an Atlanta-area police officer has been arrested.

The U.S. Marshals Service said Taurean McShan was arrested Thursday afternoon in Memphis. A news release says McShan tried to run away and climbed on a rooftop before he was spotted and arrested.

No injuries were reported. McShan is being held at the Shelby County jail as he awaits extradition. Online court records do not show if he has a lawyer.

Authorities from several states had been searching for McShan since he was charged with aggravated assault against an officer on Monday. Atlanta police said McShan had rented a truck in the Memphis area and struck Officer Levar Sims in Fairburn.
