Borger, Texas - A Borger man is arrested following nearly a 24 hour manhunt in Hutchinson county. Borger police say they pulled over 43 year old Hershel Moffitt for a routine traffic stop Friday night in Borger.

As they attempted to take him into custody, police say he struck a Borger police officer with his vehicle, then sped away at a high rate of speed. Multiple law enforcement agencies began searching for Moffitt and finally arrested him Saturday night at a home in Fritch.

Moffitt is charged with Aggravated Assault on a Public Servant. The officer was treated for his injuries and released from the hospital that night.
