Cuthbert -- A South Georgia man is behind bars, accused of running down a Cuthbert police officer with his car.

Thirty-five-year-old Calvin Ramsey, who was on probation, is charged with aggravated assault on a police officer, obstruction of an officer, and leaving the scene of an accident.

Cuthbert police officer Jimmy Brooks stopped Ramsey on Andrew Street, shortly after eight-O'clock Thursday night.

Police say as Brooks approached the vehicle, Ramsey wheeled around and slammed into officer Brooks, who suffered several broken bones in his leg.  

"We were very concerned the Mayor and myself, and another councilman showed up at the hospital to check on officer Brooks after he was transported to the hospital," said City Manager Booker Shorter. "The police chief has gone over today to check on him and we are concerned."  

Officer Brooks was assisting probation officers at the time of the incident. Officers chased Ramsey and arrested him not far away. He's in the Randolph County Jail.

Officer Brooks is being treated at Palmyra Medical Centers, where he will have surgery on his leg.
