SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS Radio) - Police investigating reports of a reckless driver in San Francisco's Visitacion Valley neighborhood Wednesday night arrested a man who allegedly tried to run over an officer.

Officers responded to the intersection of Hahn Street and Visitation Avenue around 10:30 p.m. and found a 29-year-old man driving a Toyota Camry.

The suspect attempted to run an officer over, forcing the officer to dive out of the way, police officials said. Then, when police encountered the suspect again, he allegedly rammed their vehicle.

No one was injured, however, and the man was taken into custody. 

His name was not immediately released.
