LINN COUNTY, Mo. (KMIZ)
A Moberly man faces a seven-year sentence for shooting a Randolph County Deputy.
Jason Garner, 42, pleaded guilty Oct. 26 to felony charges of second-degree assault and resisting arrest by fleeing. The case was moved to Linn County on a venue change.
On March 27, investigators arrested Garner after he attacked a woman at a home in the 600 block of Adams Avenue in Moberly.
Body camera footage shows Garner reaching for a deputy's gun, according to the sheriff's office. Garner allegedly shot the deputy in his right leg below the knee moments later.
The court documents revealed the deputy was taken to a hospital with a serious but non-life-threatening gunshot wound. His leg had to be later reconstructed.
