Prisoner being transported becomes “aggressive” towards deputy

Police Lights

(WEAU) - Back-up had to be called Tuesday afternoon after there was an incident between a prisoner and a deputy at a gas station.

The Eau Claire County Sheriff Ron Cramer says a deputy was transporting a prisoner from Polk County and was stopped at a Kwik Trip off of Clairemont Avenue. He says the prisoner became aggressive with the deputy, so the deputy called back and other deputies helped get the prisoner under control.

Cramer says the deputy was not hurt.
