Man charged after struggle with Franklin County deputy
UNION (AP) - A man who was shot during a struggle with Franklin County police was charged with assaulting an officer.
According to the Franklin County Sheriff's office, 57-year-old Franklin Kelley was charged Tuesday, a day after the incident. Police said Kelley pulled a pistol on a deputy and then tried to grab the deputy's weapon.
Authorities said the deputy approached Kelley while responding to a report of a suspicious person in Villa Ridge who may have been a suspect in a robbery at a Dollar General store earlier in the day.
Kelley was being held at the Franklin County jail on $50,000 bond. It was not immediately clear if Kelley had an attorney.
