On Sunday around 2am, a Pella Police Officer attempted a traffic stop on vehicle near the college. When the officer approached the vehicle which had stopped in a parking lot, the driver, Jeremy Snead, ran. After the officer caught up with Snead, they struggled on the ground as Snead attempted to get up. The officer received an injury to his chin during this altercation. Snead escaped from the officer, tearing his shirt in the process. Snead was later located in Vance Hall and was arrested for operating while intoxicated, public intoxication, interference with official acts, and assault of a peace officer.
