2 Huron police officers injured in foot chase

Posted: Updated:

HURON, S.D. (AP) - Two Huron police officers are getting some time off to recover after they were injured while chasing a suspect on foot.

Police Chief Gary Will Jr. said officers responded to call on possible underage drinking, but a 16-year-old boy tried to escape on foot. While chasing the boy and arresting him, Capt. Dan Kight sustained a foot injury and Officer Sam Freng injured a leg.

Will says the two officers will be off work for several weeks, so he's had to adjust the schedules of other officers to help cover a night shift.

The boy has been charged with underage consumption of alcohol, refusing to obey the lawful order of an officer, resisting arrest and aggravated assault on a police officer.
