Held in connection with the kick was William D. Everts, 35, of Linn Junction, lie also is charged with another assaul and other crimes. Grant said he and a deputy were in the sheriff's county cai when a radio dispatch indicate! there was a drunk in a farmyart cast of Troy Mills. Since the sheriff's car was the closest to the scene, the sherifl drove lo the farm. However, the Coggon marshal got there firs and put Evcrls in his car to await the sheriff's arrival. While wailing Everts allegedly struck Marshal Lumir Havlik's wife, Lucille, in the shoulder: and back with his fists. An as- sault and battery charge was 'iled for that. Restrained The sheriff said Everts was restrained with handcuffs, bui .hat as he was driving him to iail, the suspect got his feet into :he air and kicked the sheriff in Ihe back of the head. Grant said a city charge of assaulting an officer will be 'iled for that since it happened at Collins road and C avenue NE and no slate statute deals with an assault on an officer., The sheriff said Everts also ticked the antenna of the radar unit and that a charge is pend ng for that. Everts also has wen charged with intoxication in a public place. Held in Jail He was held in the county jail Monday pending arraignment He was treated at a hospita before being taken to jail. He suffered injuries during a scuf fie with the marshal, Grant said. The sheriff said the Everts in cident was the third one he was involved in during the evening and that he did not get a chanc to learn about the radar. The other incidents involved a car whose lights were not work ing and a man-who .was drivini erratically because he was to time to" be announced. Harry L. Miller Harry.
