A Eunice man is charged with trying to run down two undercover narcotics officers.

The Sheriff's Office says the officers were involved in an undercover drug buy when the alleged seller, identified as 20-year-old Steven Arvie, got cold feet, and jumped in his car to flee the scene.

One of the officers jumped in front of the car and shot out its tires, but authorities say Arvie hit the accelerator, nearly running over the officer, before he was taken into custody.

Arvie has been charged with attempted first degree murder, distribution of cocaine, and reckless operation.
