MEMPHIS, TN (WMC-TV) - Police have charged a Memphis man for firing at an officer.

Investigators said an officer pulled over Kevin Yearwood early Saturday morning while responding to a report of a prowler near Ridgeway and Ridgeway Manor.

When Yearwood stopped, he leaned out his vehicle, fired three to four shots, and then sped away.

Yearwood bailed out of his car a short time later.  Officers found him hiding in a shed in the 3400 block of Carrington.  His female passenger was also taken into custody.
