A man accused of fighting a deputy earlier this week while fleeing arrest turned himself in to the Jessamine County jail Thursday night and is now facing additional charges.

James Ryan Gosser, 22, of Nicholasville was wanted on arrest warrants out of two different counties when a deputy tried to arrest him on Monday night, according to the Jessamine County Sheriff’s Office.

But when the deputy tried to handcuff Gosser, he pulled away, ran and drove away with the deputy’s foot in the vehicle, according to the sheriff’s office and surveillance video.

When he turned himself in Thursday night, Gosser was given the additional charges of attempting to disarm a police officer, resisting arrest, first-degree wanton endangerment, fleeing and evading arrest, giving an officer a false name and having an improper windshield on a vehicle, according to the sheriff’s office.

Gosser is being held in the Jessamine County jail. His bond has not yet been set.
