Hopkinton Man Charged with Injuring Sheriff’s Deputy

A Hopkinton man has been charged with injuring a Sheriff’s Deputy.

The Delaware County Sheriff’s Office says it started when they received a complaint that Jeremy Coleman was in and out of the ditch and driving recklessly in the 330th Street area. A deputy responding to the call spotted Coleman’s truck sliding completely sideways several times before driving in and out of another ditch on 330th Street and running a stop sign on 220th Avenue. Coleman was pulled over southwest of Hopkinton, with a breath test showing his blood alcohol level was over the legal limit.

Coleman was arrested for OWI and taken to the Delaware County Sheriff’s Office. After being booked into jail, the Sheriff’s Office says Coleman refused to go to his cell and took a fighting stance with Deputy Clayton Miller. Coleman had to be assisted to the ground to gain compliance, which is when Deputy Miller received a cut to his wrist.

Coleman faces several charges, including Operating While Under the Influence and Interference with Official Acts Causing Bodily Injury.
