PORTLAND -- A man rammed his car into a Portland police cruiser and another vehicle right outside the Multnomah County Jail Wednesday night, police said.

Just after 9:15 p.m. an officer saw a driver back into another vehicle near Southwest 2nd Avenue and Madison Street, said Portland Police Lt. Mike Fort. The suspect was identified as 36-year-old Jeffery Fuller.

When the officer turned on his lights, the driver backed his car into the police cruiser, then took off, Fort said. Fuller is then accused of driving over a curb and a fence before hitting the police cruiser again.

Officers said he backed up and then rammed into the police car several more times. Nearby officers helped detain Fuller, who was also tasered during the altercation.

We had officers that were coming outside to help, Fort said. We had a police captain that was a witness coming to work as well.

Fuller was booked into the Multnomah County Jail and could face several charges. He was scheduled to appear in court Thursday afternoon.

It is kind of ironic that this would happen right in front of the police station, so the officers actually handcuffed the suspect and walked him right inside the front door of the police station, 100 feet away.

According to a court documents, Fuller was convicted of manslaughter 1993 when he was 16 years old. He was reportedly behind the wheel during a wreck that killed one passenger and injured a second.
