The Wright County Sheriff’s Office conducted a traffic stop and found that the driver, 31-year-old Fort Dodge resident Sean McMillan, was driving while barred and in possession of a handgun.

A sheriff’s deputy placed McMillan in handcuffs and sat him in the passenger seat of a squad car.

The Iowa DCI said McMillan then “jumped the console of the squad car,” hit the gas pedal and struck the sheriff’s deputy.

“While he is dealing with the second subject that was in the car, the guy slipped his cuffs underneath his legs, jumped the center console, put the vehicle in reverse and floored it and hit the deputy,” Wright County Sheriff Jason Schluttenhofer said. “The deputy discharged his weapon one time and hit the windshield.”

Police said McMillan drove away but abandoned the vehicle a short distance later and fled on foot.

He was eventually found hiding at a friend’s house, where he was taken into custody.

Eagle Grove resident Brian Poppen was recording on his cell phone when Eagle Grove Police, state troopers and Wright County deputies surrounded the neighborhood and coaxed McMillan out of the house.

“He walked out of the house, laid on the front lawn and was of course swarmed by police,” Poppen said.

Schools in Eagle Grove were placed on lockdown for several hours by request of the police department.

Eagle Grove resident Hailey Konecne said she was in class while her mother’s neighborhood was swarmed with police.

“Then I figured out it was by my mom’s house and my son was there,” Hailey Konecne said. “I was trying to come pick him up, but i couldn’t because there was so many cops.”

Schluttenhofer said he is relieved the situation ended the way it did and that nobody was seriously injured.

“I was sick, to be honest with you. Up here, that kind of stuff doesn’t happen,” he said. “Very relieved the deputy is OK and nobody else got hurt. It could have turned really bad.”

The deputy involved in the in the incident has not been named. Authorities said he is resting at home.
