Marquelle Smith, 28, is due in court on Friday.

Smith is the man allegedly at the heart of an incident on Monday, which left two Evansville Police officers on administrative leave.

The incident happened after the officers responded to a shots fired call near Jefferson and Bedford.

Officers say they tried to detain Smith, but they say he tried to drive away.

It was during that encounter that officers fired their guns.

They say Smith kept driving and ended up crashing into a nearby shed.

His bond is now set at $250,000.
