Troopers tried to stop Pete Lancaster around 1:30 a.m. Tuesday near Route 40 in Farmington. But authorities say the 28-year-old Uniontown man pulled into a driveway and put the vehicle in reverse at a high rate of speed, striking a trooper in the leg before driving away.
Lancaster allegedly drove faster than 100 mph during the subsequent pursuit. But he eventually stopped and ran into some woods, where he was soon captured.
Authorities say they found counterfeit money in his car and soon learned he was wanted on forgery charges.
Lancaster faces numerous felony counts, including aggravated assault. It wasn't known Thursday if he's retained a lawyer.
