Nebraska man charged with attempted murder of Iowa officer
SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) — A Jan. 21 hearing is scheduled for a Nebraska man accused of shooting at an Iowa State Patrol officer after a traffic stop.
The Iowa charges against Anthony Walls, 27, include attempted murder and armed assault on an officer. Iowa authorities have said Walls was a passenger in a car pulled over in Sioux City on Dec. 26. Walls resisted when a trooper tried to take him into custody and then pulled a gun and fired twice at the trooper before running into South Ravine Park, authorities said. He was caught 20 minutes later.
Walls was in Woodbury County Jail on Monday, awaiting transfer to Omaha, Nebraska, jail records say. He’s charged in Omaha with felony domestic assault on a pregnant woman and with failure to appear to face alcohol charges. The Nebraska records don’t list the name of an attorney who could comment for Walls.
