— Police arrested a man they say intentionally rammed his sport-utility vehicle into a van filled with Wake County sheriff's deputies.

Officers were investigating Price on possible drug charges when he noticed them.

Price tried to drive off in his Ford Explorer but couldn't get away and, instead, crashed into the van, investigators said.

Eleven deputies were in the van.

Price was charged with assault with a deadly weapon, as well the drug offenses.
