Man indicted after attack on deputy

Man indicted after attack on deputy

A Seneca County man, shot twice by authorities last month, has now been indicted.

Aaron Russ, 42, of Waterloo, was charged with second-degree assault after an incident last month.

Seneca County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to a call that Russ was drinking and out of control. When deputies tried to calm Russ down, they say he started attacking one of the deputies.

A Taser was used, but it didn’t slow Russ down, so a deputy eventually fired twice, striking Russ.

The deputy was put on administrative leave, but an investigation showed that the deputies did nothing wrong in their response to the call.
