According to a criminal complaint:

Three deputies were dispatched to an Ellsworth residence 7:31 p.m. June 2 for a domestic incident in progress. The complainant, who lived with Anderson and his girlfriend, said Anderson was strangling his girlfriend and made comments about killing himself.

A later interview with the victim revealed she was attempting to break up the eight-year relationship with Anderson.

As one deputy approached the scene, another deputy parked his marked patrol vehicle at the intersection of 677th Street and 410th Avenue in an attempt to stop Anderson., who was driving a Saturn Vue southbound on 677th Street.

Anderson did not slow down when approaching the squad car at around 55 mph and the deputy exited the vehicle before Anderson struck the car at 7:36 p.m., causing it to roll over onto its roof. Anderson’s vehicle continued in the field.

Anderson showed signs of substance use and intoxication when being restrained and admitted to drinking approximately 20 cans of beer and hard liquors.

While handcuffed, he kicked a deputy three times, causing equipment on the deputy’s uniform to fall off or break.
