Vienna Police Chief Bob Ludt says the officer who was rammed has a minor injury to his hand.

The cruiser’s front end near the driver’s side tire was also dented when it was hit.

Those with information on Lambert’s whereabouts should call Vienna police at 330-856-4421.

“Obviously he doesn’t want to go to jail, so I would highly recommend the public not trying to intercede in any way. Just give us the information,” Ludt said.

Ludt says Lambert had warrants out of Warren and Morrow County.
