BETTENDORF, Iowa — An Aledo man has entered into a plea agreement after police said he hit an officer with a car.
Online court records show that 24-year-old Jonathan Swearingen pleaded guilty in February of 2020.
Previous reports indicate that police responded to a report of theft at the Isle of Capri in the early morning hours of November 21, 2019.
Responding officers pulled over a Dodge Caliber, when the driver then drove away from the stop, "quickly accelerated and struck" an officer who had just gotten out of a squad car," said a statement from the City of Bettendorf.
The side mirror reportedly hit the officer's arm, leaving him with minor injuries.
Swearingen was set to be sentenced on April 9 at 10 a.m. He has been held in the Scott County Jail since November 21 on $20,000 bond.
