A Butler County motorist is accused of ramming another vehicle from behind twice on Tuesday, following it to the state police barracks and ramming it a third time before driving through a yard and getting stuck in a ditch.

Ricky Allison, 53, of Slippery Rock became combative with troopers and had to be subdued with pepper spray and a stun gun following a road rage incident at 1:50 p.m. at the intersection of routes 8 and 308 in Center, state police said.

Allison is accused of twice ramming a vehicle driven by Vaughn Bowser of Worthington and then following it to the barracks, where he rammed it again as Bowser got out. Allison pushed Bowser's vehicle along Barracks Road before trying to flee as troopers began to converge on him, police said.
