FRANKFORT, Ky. (WTVQ) – The Franklin Co. Sheriff’s Office says it’s investigating a hit and run accident involving a man accused of injuring a police officer.
Russell Wheat was arrested on Tuesday. Wheat is the same man arrested and charged with assault in 2011 after a chase and crash that hurt Frankfort police officer Byron Redmon who was trying to stop Wheat.
Wheat was also accused of dragging an officer as he left a gas station a few months later.
