A man on Long Island is charged with trying to hit two Nassau County police officers with his car.

Police say they were investigating 26-year old Dashawn Combs on suspicion of selling drugs out of his Massapequa apartment.

Officers say they approached Combs in his car and identified himself. That's when he's accused of driving backwards towards the officers.

They opened fire, but no one was hurt.

After searching Combs' apartment, officers say they found heroin and crack cocaine, and arrested Combs and 26-year old Shantel Jackson.
