Maurice Wilkerson tried to run over a JPD officer after she tried to apprehend him while he was allegedly burglarizing another home on Wayneland. Wilkerson lives on Wayneland Drive as well, and is 55 years old.
The officer jumped out of the way and fired a round. Wilkerson tried to escape in his 2005 Dodge truck as JPD gave chase to the wayward neighbor. He was apprehended on Ridgewood Road by Virginia College. JPD charged him with aggravated assault of a police officer and business burglary (the home was a rental unit). Wilkerson is a black male who is on probation and just released from jail.
