A California man accused of trying to run over a Border Patrol agent during a high-speed chase has been charge with forcible assault with a Ford Mustang, the Los Angeles Times reports.
Ivan Nieves, 20, was indicted in the attack after he led Border Patrol agents on a chase in Imperial County, the FBI said Monday.
The incident happened after Nieves drove away from a checkpoint.
After dodging law enforcement during a pursuit, Nieves is accused of striking a Border Patrol agent with his car after the agent was removing a spike strip on the road to stop the fleeing car.
Nieves, who was captured shortly after, faces up to 20 years in prison.
