According to police, Donovan Fulton, age 33, of Hirschy Lane, ran over police officer Linda Allen after she caught him shoplifting a bottle of wine at the Valero on Stagecoach around noon today. A witness aided the injured officer and called for assistance on the officer’s radio. Within 30 minutes police had tracked down the suspect at an Exxon station on Scott Hamilton/I-30 where police say he was demanding beer and cigarettes from a clerk at knife point. He was arrested and charged with a few felonies including first degree battery and robbery.
