A 19-year-old Robbinsdale man is jailed after the Blue Earth County Sheriff’s Office says he violently resisted arrest after a deputy spotted a baggie of cocaine sticking out of his sweatshirt pocket during a traffic stop.
Deputies say Khalil Bryant initially handed over a baggie of pot, surrendered the coke from his sweatshirt, and another baggie of cocaine and a bag of money was found in a pat-down. However, when the officer tried to handcuff Bryant he says the suspect struggled and took both of them to the ground.
Bryant managed to get away and run off. He was caught trying to get into the passenger seat of a car not long after.
The criminal complaint shows that Lieutenant Jeremy Brennan suffered multiple injuries, including a possible broken finger and many cuts and scrapes to his elbows, arms, and legs.
Bryant was also treated for minor injuries before being taken to jail, and hospital staff also drew blood for potential driving while impaired charges.
Preliminary charges include assault, drug possession, two counts of obstructing the legal process, and assaulting an officer.
