EDGEWOOD, Md. — An Edgewood man is being held without bail after allegedly running over a sheriff's deputy, leading to a highway pursuit.

It all started around 6:52pm Tuesday when Harford County deputies were called to the 1800 block of Eloise Lane for a fight.

Senior Deputy J. Amrein arrived on scene first and was unable to find anyone fighting.

After speaking to a witness, Amrein approached a car in the parking lot he believed was involved.

The driver allegedly accelerated towards Amrein, striking and briefly pinning him between another car before fleeing.

Other deputies gave chase through routes 40 and 24, all the way to the Maryland House off I-95 where the driver crashed.

The driver, 34-year-old Martin Tyson Bradley, was given Narcan on scene for a potential overdose and taken by helicopter to University of Maryland Shock Trauma.

He was eventually released and charged with attempted second degree murder and assault on a Law Enforcement Officer.

Investigators believe Bradley ingested drugs during the chase of dispose of evidence, and at the time of the incident, he was set to return to prison after violating his probation on a previous drug conviction.

Deputy Amrein was also treated at an area hospital and later released.

Anyone with information on the case can call the Sheriff's Office at 443-409-350.
