Police seek man who rammed police car

Chattanooga police are seeking a man who rammed his car into a police cruiser and is now on the run.

Police were serving a warrant for Tony Pickett, 27, at 2312 Bailey Ave., when Pickett pulled out in a white Chevrolet Impala, striking the police car, according to police spokeswoman Officer Rebecca Royval.

He managed to get away and police later found the empty Impala, she said. A tip to police said he was last seen in a black 2003 Chevy Camaro, she said.

He is considered dangerous, Royval said.

Pickett is wanted for two counts of aggravated assault, stalking, felony evading, vandalism, driving on revoked license and two different probation violations.

If you know the whereabouts of Pickett, call the Chattanooga Police Department at 423-698-2525.

"he was last seen in a black 2003 Chevy Camaro"

I highly doubt that (the Camaro was discontinued from 2002 until 2010)

This guy is disgusting. I was at Pickett's court hearing 2 days after my birthday in 2009. He had an 'attempted first degree murder' charge (out of his 50 previous charges of drugs and domestic violence) and Judge Steelman dropped the charges to aggravated assault (11 months behind bars). Don't you feel safe in Chattanooga? Bet the police won't wanna pay .30 cents a mile on that car!
