News Staff - June 12, 2018

RAPID CITY, S.D. -Rapid City police say they arrested a man for aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer after a traffic stop over the weekend.

Police say 41-year-old Timmy Johnston was initially stopped by a Rapid City police officer Saturday night. After the stop, police discovered a warrant out for Johnston's arrest.

After first talking with Johnston, the officer walked to the back of Johnston’s vehicle. Johnston then reportedly reversed quickly toward the officer. The officer, believing he was going to be hit, used his hand to push off of the vehicle. Police say the officer was not injured.

There was a short chase before the suspect bailed out of the vehicle on Farlow Avenue. He was later found nearby hiding in some bushes.

Besides aggravated assault, Johnston is also charged with aggravated eluding, drug possession and a probation hold.
