JPSO Deputy Fires on Vehicle in Self Defense

The Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office says a deputy is okay after a suspect involved in an attempted traffic stop in Harvey tried to run over him.  The vehicle came to a stop late Saturday afternoon on Alex Kornman Boulevard, but as the deputy approached, the driver, 32-year-old Bill Rumfield, allegedly tried to hit him, prompting the deputy to open fire in fear of his safety.  It's not known if Rumfield was wounded.
