KNOXVILLE (WATE) - A homeless man is facing several charges after allegedly hurling a large rock at a KPD cruiser early Sunday morning.

According to the Knoxville Police Department, Officer Jeff Allgood was driving the Jackson Avenue viaduct just east of Gay Street around 3 a.m. when a rock hit the driver's side door of his cruiser.

Allgood says he was able to see the suspect run away and into the Norfolk Southern train yard. Officers say he soon ran into a wooded area near Depot Street.

Police say that after the suspect refused to surrender, they sent in a K-9, who quickly bit the man on both legs, allowing officers to take him into custody.

The suspect, 29-year-old Corey Isbell, suffered minor injuries. He has now been charged with felony aggravated assault, felony vandalism, evading arrest, criminal trespassing, and public intoxication.
