A 23-year-old man was arrested for aggravated assault against an officer and various driving charges after he allegedly drove drunk through Aggieville early Monday morning.

Shane Johnson, 724 Laramie St., was arrested for aggravated assault against a law enforcement officer, interference with law enforcement, DUI, reckless driving and driving while revoked at approximately 2:40 a.m. Monday.

Lt. Josh Kyle said Sgt. Scott Hajek saw Johnson enter the driver side of a car while he was allegedly intoxicated and when Hajek tried to stop him, Johnson allegedly sped off as Hajek closely stood next to the car.

Johnson then allegedly drove recklessly through Aggieville before fleeing on foot. Kyle said he was later apprehended.

He was released from the Riley County Jail on $5,000 bond.
