The Dyfed-Powys police officer was attacked by two men as he carried out a "routine stop" on the car at Synod Inn on 9 February.
The force said it had been searching for the man since Saturday, and a 24-year-old was arrested on Friday.
A 29-year-old man has been charged with several offences, including assault causing actual bodily harm.
- Armed manhunt after PC attacked
- Arrest in police officer assault manhunt
- Police-attack man 'may have left area'
He has appeared in court, also charged with criminal damage, aggravated vehicle taking, vehicle damage and two counts of taking a vehicle without the owner's consent.
The officer is making "steady progress" after the incident, but has not yet returned to work.
Ch Supt Peter Roderick said: "I am pleased to confirm the arrest of the outstanding man, following a long and intense operation to locate him.
"This operation has involved departments across Dyfed-Powys Police, as well as colleagues from other police forces as we focussed on locations outside our force area."
