A Gardnerville man was arrested after he allegedly tried to back his car up into a deputy.

Richard Greene, 35, was arrested on charges of ex-felon failure to register, reckless driving, driving with a revoked license, speeding 41 plus over, failure to obey a traffic device, no insurance and eluding a police officer.

Greene was arrested Friday at 11 p.m. when deputies observed a vehicle traveling 90 mph on southbound Highway 395. The vehicle was allegedly swerving through cars and ran a read light, almost striking a vehicle obeying its green light. The vehicle failed to stop when the deputies indicated the driver to stop.

He eventually came to a stop, but refused to turn off his car. He instead put the car in reverse and began to back towards the deputies. The deputy drew his gun because Greene was not obeying commands. He eventually stepped out of the car and was placed under arrest.

His bail is set at $4,467.
