Md. prosecutor: Driver tried to run down officer

The Capital

ANNAPOLIS, Md. — A prosecutor yesterday said a Bowie man tried to "mow down" a county police officer last October during a traffic stop - missing him by only a few feet.

Assistant State's Attorney Anastasia Prigge said Cpl. Jason Parrotte feared for his life so much that he shot at 41-year-old Calvin Fitzgerald Johnson and his SUV four times.

"We cannot allow people to run officers over," she said yesterday during opening statements of the expected two-day jury trial.
