From staff reportsOctober 20, 2013 

Deputies arrested a Cary man Friday and charged him with trying to hit a Raleigh police officer with a motor vehicle.

Maurice Deshon Arnold, 20, of 115 Karen Court, Cary, was arrested Oct. 18 on eight charges.

Arnold is accused of robbery with a dangerous weapon on Oct. 14, when, according to police records, he threatened a woman with a pistol and stole $350 in property from her - an iPad and cell phone. He is also charged with attempted robbery with a dangerous weapon of another person on the same day.

On Oct. 18, when Raleigh police officer R.M. Carroll tried to serve Arnold with warrants for arrest, Arnold tried to hit Carroll with a motor vehicle, police said.

Arnold is also charged with possession of a stolen firearm and trying to remove its serial number.

Arnold was convicted in 2012 of possession with the intent to sell or distribute marijuana, making him a felon, which resulted in another charge in the latest batch — of possession of a firearm by a felon.

Arnold's court date is set for 9 a.m. Monday.
