South Dakota authorities have issued an arrest warrant for a Sioux City man accused of intentionally injuring a South Dakota police officer in a hit-and-run incident.
35 year-old Travis McPeek is wanted for felony aggravated assault against law enforcement.
Authorities allege McPeek struck Tyndall Police Officer Kelly Young with his truck in a convenience store parking lot on August 6th and fled the scene.
Officer Young was talking to McPeek about a driving complaint at the time.
Young was treated at a hospital for broken ribs, a cut on one of his legs, an injured ankle, and other cuts and bruises.
Tyndall Finance Officer Linda Pesek says Young is recuperating at home and hasn’t been cleared by a doctor to return to work.
