    BARTOW COUNTY, Ga. - A man who was shot after allegedly trying to run over a Georgia deputy during a chase Friday has been released from the hospital and booked into jail.

    Charles Allen Brock, 47, of Cartersville, faces 20 charges in Bartow County, including eight charges in connection with the chase that prompted the officer-involved shooting, jail records show.

    Bartow County Deputy Matthew Aliberti attempted to pull Brock over for a traffic violation, but he wouldn’t stop and drove away, the GBI said. Brock’s vehicle and Aliberti’s patrol car ended up driving into a ditch near 4956 Country Lane in Acworth.

    Aliberti got out of his car, which is when Brock “attempted to run over Deputy Aliberti with his vehicle,” the GBI said. Aliberti fired multiple shots at Brock, hitting him, AJC.com previously reported.
