Man tries to run down DCI agent in Catfish Bend Casino garage

The DCI and local police are looking for a man they say tried to run down an agent at the Catfish Bend Casino in Burlington. The DCI says an agent went to the casino garage Wednesday evening around 9 o’clock on the report that someone was breaking into cars.

The report says a man took a casino employee’s car and drove at the agent as the agent attempt to stop him. The agent jumped out of the way and fired three shots at the man, who hit the agent’s patrol car and then sped away. The stolen vehicle was found a short time later.

The DCI agent was not hurt and the search is on for a black male who was wearing a heavy coat and stocking cap.
