DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla. - A suspect accused of ramming two Broward Sheriff's Office cruisers and leading deputies on a chase was scheduled to appear in court on similar charges, court records show.

BSO spokeswoman Dani Moschella said Derek Fuller, 26, led deputies on a chase after he was spotted fleeing the scene of a burglary in Oakland Park early Wednesday morning.

The Chevrolet Malibu that Fuller was driving sped onto Interstate 95 and traveled north to Deerfield Beach, where he rammed a deputy's cruiser, Moschella said.

Fuller continued to elude deputies, ramming two other BSO cruisers before bailing out, Moschella said. He then ran through a relative's apartment, over a barbed-wire fence and into a fence, where he was apprehended, Moschella said.

Two of the deputies he rammed were taken to Broward Health North Medical Center. They were expected to be OK.

Fuller was taken to the hospital to be treated for a K-9 deputy's bite before going to jail.

Court records show Fuller was out on bond after a March arrest on charges that include burglary, resisting arrest and fleeing and eluding law enforcement. He had a hearing scheduled for Thursday morning.
