Iowa Man Accused of Striking South Dakota Officer Arrested

An Iowa man accused of intentionally injuring a South Dakota police officer in a hit-and-run incident has been arrested after more than four months on the run.

The Yankton Daily Press & Dakotan reports that 35-year-old Travis McPeek, of Sioux City, Iowa, was arrested Thursday in Mesa, Arizona, by federal marshals.

McPeek had been wanted on a warrant for felony aggravated assault against law enforcement since the Aug. 6 traffic stop. Authorities allege he struck Tyndall Police Officer Kelly Young with his truck in a convenience store parking lot and fled.

Young was treated at a hospital for broken ribs, a cut on a leg, an injured ankle, and other cuts and bruises.
