HALL COUNTY - A Gainesville man seen driving around 100 mph is accused of driving his car toward a deputy’s patrol car, according to authorities.

Jeremy Brian Frick, 42, is charged with aggravated assault on a peace officer. He was booked Dec. 8 in to the Hall County Jail, where he remains.

Hall County Sheriff’s Office Lt. Scott Ware said deputies saw Frick driving recklessly near mile marker 17 of Interstate 985.

“At one point during the incident, Frick drove his vehicle, a Ford 250 truck, head-on at the deputies’ patrol vehicle, causing the deputy to take evasive action to avoid being struck,” Ware said.

The deputy was not injured.

Gainesville Police and Georgia State Patrol helped pursue Frick, who was arrested at Lakeland Road near Cleveland Highway.

Frick was also charged with DUI, failure to maintain lane, crossing the median, littering on the highway, driving on a suspended license, driving left of center, driving the wrong way on a one-way street, fleeing and eluding, reckless driving and speeding.

A Superior Court probation warrant from a prior manufacturing marijuana charge was issued a week later, Ware said.

No attorney information for Frick was given by court officials.
