A still frame from a BPD police vehicle dash camera shows the moment that an unidentified person hits the police vehicle in an attempt to flee officers.

The Brentwood Police Department is searching for the driver of a vehicle that struck a BPD patrol vehicle early Wednesday morning when the driver fled from officers.

According to BPD Public Information Officer Richard Hickey, officers were dispatched to Mallory Lane after a suspicious vehicle was reported at the Audi Nashville and Mini of Nashville dealerships.

According to police, when one patrol vehicle entered a car dealership lot, the unidentified driver of a Jeep SUV put the vehicle in reverse and attempted to go around the back of a building to avoid the officer, but was met by a second patrol vehicle. 

BPD released dash cam footage of the incident that showed the driver of the Jeep accelerate and strike one of the patrol vehicles in an attempt to go around the officer before fleeing the scene.

No one was injured in the incident. Police located the abandoned SUV at nearby Stewart Lumber with a flat tire.

Police searched for two suspects, but did not find anyone, but did recover an airsoft gun in the SUV. 

Police also report that several vehicles at Brentwood car dealerships were also found to have been broken into around the date of the incident which is still under investigation.
