Poaching Suspect Rams Patrol Cars

Deputies say they were asking Joseph Williams about a report that he tried to shoot a deer in the Sweet Home area.

They got in an argument and Williams allegedly hopped back in his truck and led deputies on a chase.

They say he intentionally hit four cars all together, sending three law enforcement officers to the hospital. They were all treated and released.
