Man charged with attempted murder of SF police officer

The man who allegedly tried to run over a San Francisco police officer earlier this week was charged with attempted murder, three other felonies and two misdemeanors Tuesday, the District Attorney’s Office said.

Jaime Ulises, 25, allegedly rammed his vehicle into an officer in Bernal Heights early Monday, pinning the cop between two vehicles near Mirabel Avenue and Shotwell Street, authorities said.

The officer, whose identity has not been released, stepped out of his car to investigate a reported auto burglary just after midnight when Ulises allegedly struck him with the vehicle.

Ulises then allegedly tried to flee, but struck another patrol cruiser and was stopped, police said. He was booked into County Jail on Monday and is being held without bail.

The officer is believed to have broken ribs and leg injuries, police said Monday.

Two other suspects were detained in connection with the incident. It’s unclear if they were arrested.

Ulises was charged with felony assault upon a peace officer with force likely to cause great bodily injury, felony evading an officer causing injury and felony evading an officer with willful disregard.

He’s also been charged with misdemeanor driving with a suspended or revoked license and giving false information to a police officer.

Ulises was scheduled to be arraigned in court Wednesday, according to the District Attorney’s Office.
