Lucas County Man Arrested in Dallas County
A man from southern Iowa's Lucas County is accused of purposely ramming his car into a pickup, then stabbing that vehicle and assaulting responding deputies.
KCCI reports that court documents show it happened Saturday on Interstate 80 in Earlham. Thirty-year-old Brandon Carroll, of Russell, reportedly told authorities he intentionally crashed into a truck because he saw it try to run law enforcement off the road.
The Dallas County Deputy who responded says he was the only law enforcement in the area, and that he was 10 miles away. Court documents show Carroll tried to grab the deputy's firearm multiple times while he was being arrested, and even said to the deputy quote, "I am going to kill you." Carroll is now facing multiple charges including assault, harassment, reckless driving and disarming a peace officer.
He’s being held in the Dallas County Jail in lieu of a $10,000 cash bond.
