An officer suffered several injuries but is expected to be OK after police say he was beaten while attempting to make an arrest.
Kaleb Darrell Morrow, 38, of Centerville, was charged with attempted murder, assault on a police officer, interference with official acts, assault while participating in a felony, and first-degree harassment.
Court filings say around 10 a.m. Sunday, Centerville Police Officer Gary Buckallew was called to 9th Street and Grant Street in Centerville to arrest Morrow.
Morrow had a warrant for probation violation.
He encountered Morrow in the Centerville High School parking lot and attempted to place him under arrest. While the encounter seemed to be calm at the start, things got heated quickly. A few minutes into the encounter, Morrow began punching Buckallew in the face, slapped him and knocked him to the ground.
Body camera video from Buckallew, obtained under Iowa public records law, shows what appeared to be a relatively calm encounter initially.
Morrow and Buckallew spoke, and Morrow was placed into the back of Buckallew’s squad car without handcuffs. A seemingly friendly conversation ensued until about three-and-a-half minutes into the video, when Buckallew informed Morrow he would have to be handcuffed.
“I, Kaleb Morrow, am the general manager of the Appanoose County Community Railroad, and you are interfering with official public acts,” Morrow could be heard saying on the footage. “I am a private railroad agent.”
Shortly after, Morrow, still visibly upset, recounted his military service and doubted Buckallew’s.
“You are no military member,” Morrow could be heard saying. “Do you respect freedom? You know I had no chance to be a man. I went straight from child to man.”
Buckallew, a US Air Force veteran, appeared to attempt to calm the situation.
“Listen to me, they’re going to call more people here,” Buckallew said. “I don’t want you to get hurt or in trouble. … I don’t want to do that … because you’re ex-military, I’m trying to be cool.”
Shortly after, a struggle began in the car, and left the car.
“I will kill you,” Morrow said, as he took Buckallew to the ground in a struggle. “I’m a soldier.”
Another officer, Sgt. Jeremy Cole, was nearby and able to assist quickly. The video shows him pulling Morrow off of Buckallew and arresting him.
According to court filings, Buckallew suffered injuries to his right elbow and left knee, as well as a scrape on his neck. He received medical attention and was released. Centerville Police Chief Tom Demry said none of the injuries are permanent.
ACHILLE, Okla. (KXII)- the Achille board of trustees voted to fire police chief Christopher Watson and keep the other two officers.
The board voted in favor of keeping assistant chief John choate and officer Candice Connor by a vote of 3-2. No action was taken by the board on reserve officer Bart Alsbrook ... because he is an unpaid volunteer.
The entire police department, three paid and Alsbrook, were suspended last Wednesday after officers raided trustee Bryan Baker's home, serving a search warrant for his wife Ashley.
She's a convicted felon accused of possessing a gun. She caught the raid on cell phone video, and after that video and police body cam video were released, the police department was placed on paid suspension last Wednesday.
Mayor David Northcutt voted to keep the chief, but one resident we talked to agrees with the other trustees.
"I'm still waiting for all the calls to come in to see who we have left tomorrow morning. We'll get through it," said Northcutt. "It's not just one cop, its all of them that need to go bottom line.
They're running around here, they're bullies. Bottom line, like I just said a while ago and they need to go," said Toby Nation, an Achille resident.
In an emergency meeting following the regularly scheduled board meeting, the board appointed assistant chief Choate as acting police chief if he chooses to take the role.
Choate later resigned. Bryan County Sheriff's deputies say they will continue to patrol the town and help the current Achille police officers.
Northcutt says the town will be taking applications starting tomorrow for a new police chief, and will start going over those applications at next Tuesday's meeting.

Miami-Dade police have released the body cam video of a controversial arrest that was caught on camera.
On March 5th, Dyma Loving called the police after she said she and her friend Adrianna Green were threatened by Frank Tumm, who pointed a gun at them, as they walked by his home in the 1300 block of SW 201st Street.
When police arrived, they interviewed Tumm and both of the women.
Body cam video of field training Officer A.I. Giraldo shows officers telling a very upset Loving to calm down.
“You need to do something. You need to chill out,” an officer can be heard telling Loving. I am asking you to chill out You are going to be arrested. You are going to be arrested. You need to calm down. We are going to bring you in.”
“I’m calm. I just want to talk to my kids,” she replied.
There is then another warning.
“You’re screaming and you are acting disorderly. You will be arrested, okay, calm down,” said an officer.
“Why do I need to be arrested, I want to charge my phone,” said Loving.
An incident report states when she “became belligerent and would not obey commands,” they moved in to restrain her.
Loving can repeatedly be heard saying, “do not touch me, do not touch me.”
When Giraldo tried to handcuff her and she resisted, he put both arms around her head and dragged her to the ground.
Loving was arrested and charged with resisting arrest without violence and disorderly conduct.
A cellphone video of the arrest was put on social media. After viewing it, Miami-Dade Police Director Juan Perez said in a statement the officer’s actions were “troubling.”
“I find the actions depicted on the video deeply troubling and in no way reflective of our core values of integrity, respect, service, and fairness. This is why last week, upon becoming aware of the video posted on social media, an immediate inquiry was initiated which resulted in the involved officer being relieved of duty and of his role as a field training officer.”
“There was no reason for him to get physical with me. I have freedom of speech,” said Loving. “It made me feel like trash.”
The Dade County Police Benevolent Association said in a statement that the officers involved were justified in their actions because Loving was uncooperative.
Loving told, “I am a single mother of three struggling to get by. I am going to hire an attorney and I want an apology and may sue.”
Tumm was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
