PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Portland police arrested a man they say crashed into one car and then rammed into two police cruisers.

The crash happened just after 9 p.m. Wednesday near Southwest Madison Street and Southwest Second Avenue -- that's right in front of the Portland Police Bureau's Central Precinct.

Several officers said they witnessed the crash.

An officer first saw 36-year-old Jeffery Fuller, driving a 2000 Pontiac, collide with a 2001 Subaru.

The officer tried to pull over Fuller, who then rammed into a police car and then T-boned another.

Fuller refused to cooperate, police said, so they had to use a Taser to arrest him.

Madison Street and Second Avenue were closed to traffic for more than an hour while police processed the scene.

Officials said alcohol is a possible factor in the crashes.

No one was injured in the collision, though Fuller's mug shot showed he has suffered cuts to his face.

Fuller, who faces charges of attempted assault, criminal mischief, driving under the influence, failure to perform the duties of a driver and reckless driving, is being held in the Multnomah County Jail.

His first court appearance is set for Thursday at 2 p.m.
