Man Facing Charges After Spitting at Olmsted County Deputy
Rochester, MN (KROC-AM News) - An Olmsted County Sheriff’s Deputy was allegedly spat on while transporting an uncooperative person into a locked facility.
The Olmsted County Sheriff’s Office said 29-year-old John Stucki of Red Wing was intoxicated while in the back of a squad car and was so loud and disorderly that the entire vehicle was shaking. This prompted a deputy to respond around 11:30 Sunday night to help transport Stucki into the locked facility.
Once Stucki was removed from the vehicle, the deputy attempted to remove the handcuffs. That is when Stucki allegedly spat at the deputy twice, hitting the deputy once in the eye.
Stucki is facing a charge of 4th-degree assault of a peace officer.
