Placeholder Image

Covington officers responded to an in-progress vehicle break in. Upon arriving, the first responding officer witnessed Dagger Grier looking out the back window of a 1999 black Ford Super Duty truck and slump down into the passenger seat.

When the officer approached the vehicle and gave a command for Grier to show his hands, he jumped out of the truck's passenger window and ran towards the woods.

Officers searched the woods and a vacant house for Grier. Grier was spotted running along a small stream and several officers surrounded him, commanding him to lie down.

However, Grier wrestled with the officers and resisted commands to roll over onto his stomach and place his hands behind his back. An officer used a Taser to administered a shock to Grier. After, Grier rolled over and allowed officer to place handcuffs on him. However, he refused to stand to his feet. It took four officers to pick Grier up and place him in the patrol car.

After arresting Grier for entering an auto and two counts of obstruction of an officer, the first responding officer went back to document the crime scene. The officer noted that Grier had taken a rock and busted out the passenger side window and looked through all of the truck's internal compartments.
