The officers, driving separate patrol cars, observed a vehicle driving erratically and stopped the driver on South Duff Avenue near Airport Road around 1 a.m. today, Brennan said. The driver exited the vehicle during the traffic stop, then returned behind the wheel and drove directly at the officers, he said. The two officers then fired their weapons. They were not injured, he said.
The incident is under investigation by Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation, Iowa State Patrol and Ames police.
