Chattanooga police are seeking a man who rammed his car into a police cruiser and is now on the run.

Police were serving a warrant for Tony Pickett, 27, at 2312 Bailey Ave., when Pickett pulled out in a white Chevrolet Impala, striking the police car, according to police spokeswoman Officer Rebecca Royval.

He managed to get away and police later found the empty Impala, she said. A tip to police said he was last seen in a black 2003 Chevy Camaro, she said.

He is considered dangerous, Royval said.

Pickett is wanted for two counts of aggravated assault, stalking, felony evading, vandalism, driving on revoked license and two different probation violations.
