A 34-year-man was charged Tuesday with threatening an Overland Park police sergeant with a gun.
Bradley Don Poland was charged in Johnson County District Court with aggravated assault and battery on a law enforcement officer.
His bond was set at $250,000.
The sergeant suffered minor injuries in the incident, which began near 104th and Marty streets when he pulled over a car that was driving without headlights shortly before 1:30 a.m. Tuesday, according to police.
As the sergeant got out of his patrol vehicle, the driver took off and ran into the fire hydrant just across the street.
The driver then got out of the vehicle and pulled out a handgun, according to the police.
The sergeant was able to disarm the man, who then started running away. The officer chased him and tackled him to the ground.
