A Mt. Juliet man was charged with reckless endangerment and other charges after police said he left Mt. Juliet High School and nearly ran over a deputy Thursday.

Wilson County Sheriff Robert Bryan said "there was an incident at Mt. Juliet High School on Thursday."

He said a parent showed up to pick up a student, but his "name was not on the list for pickup."

Bryan said he parked in a fire lane, and "came close to running over" a deputy as he was leaving.

A report was taken, and the man was tracked to his home in Bradford Park, behind Providence in Mt. Juliet.

"He came out and surrendered," said Bryan.

He was charged with felony reckless endangerment  and driving on a suspended license, said Bryan. Other charges are possible.
