Heard on tape: Student choked Iowa cop
Brandon Plummer, 20, was charged with attempted murder for an attack on an unidentified officer
By PoliceOne Staff
IOWA CITY, Iowa — Police arrested a man who was on the run after strangling an officer.
"Stop. There's blood everywhere," a woman is heard saying. "Seriously, stop. Let him go."
Plummer used his forearm to restrain the officer from behind, securing the hold with a wrist grab, according to a criminal complaint. According to a witness, Plummer also "slammed the officer's head into the concrete and told him not to call 911."
If convicted, Plummer could face at least 25 years in prison. In court Wednesday his hearing was set for December 12 and his bond set at $100,000.
The officer has recovered and returned to work since the attack.
