LOCKLAND, OH (FOX19) -

A suspect accused of pulling a gun on a police officer and squeezing the trigger is scheduled to face a judge Wednesday.

Keno Phillips, 40, faces multiple charges after police say he struggled with two Lockland officers late Monday. They attempted to pull his car over for not having a visible license plate at N. Wayne Avenue and Shepherd Lane, court records show.

Police say he kept going and then pulled into a lot on Wayne Avenue, where he bailed and tried to run away.

The officer gave chase and tackled him, but he fought with and assaulted them, records state.

A Woodlawn police sergeant who happened to be in the area pulled up, jumped from his vehicle and tried to help.

Phillips continued to fight all three law enforcement officials - and then police say he pulled his semi-automatic pistol.

Court records state he put it to one of the officer's abdomen and pulled the trigger. When Phillips realized there wasn't a round in the chamber, he tried to load it. The officer grabbed the gun and shoved it away from his body.

Phillips continued to fight police and was only able to be taken into custody after other officers from neighboring agencies responded to help, records state.

Police said they found a Crown Royal bag in his car that held six packaged bundles of heroin and another large bag of the drug totaling 14.3 grams. They believe the heroin was prepared for sale or resale.

Phillips was booked into the Hamilton County jail just after 3:30 a.m. Tuesday on several charges including three counts of felonious assault and one count each of drug trafficking, drug possession, carrying concealed weapons and resisting arrest.
