Email to a Friend Printer Friendly Version  

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) -- A Providence man has been indicted in the alleged carjacking of a pickup truck last December.

Jason Nealy allegedly carjacked the Dodge truck on River Avenue in Providence, then refused to stop when confronted by a police blockade. He was arrested after an officer fired several shots at the truck to keep from being run over.

An off-duty officer had witnessed the incident. The 37-year-old Nealy was indicted by a Providence County grand jury on one count of first-degree carjacking and one count of assault with a dangerous weapon. Nealy is scheduled to be arraigned in Providence Superior Court later this month.
