A man is in jail after trying to kill a police officer in Henrico County

HENRICO, VA (WWBT)-A man is behind bars, accused of trying to kill a police officer. Authorities say they went to the 900 block of Pleasant Street on Friday to investigate a violation of a protective order.

When they tried to arrest 36 year old Kevin Lewis for that alleged violation, police say Lewis tried to take one of the officer's weapons.

No one was hurt, but Lewis is facing a list of charges including attempted capital murder and assault with a gun against a police officer.

He's being held without bond until a court appearance, next month.
