Luke Alvin Oeltjenbruns Wiki – Luke Alvin Oeltjenbruns Bio
Luke Alvin Oeltjenbruns was arrested after a short police pursuit ended near State Highway 15 and South Grade Road in Hutchinson.
This video is unreal. A white guy drives away from police, dragging an officer and striking him with a hammer, but was NOT shot. All of this unfolding in the same state where a cop fatally shot Daunte Wright.
He is 61 years old.
According to a press release from Hutchinson Police Services, officers were called to Menards for a man’s report, later identified as Luke Alvin Oeltjenbruns. He assaulted an employee with some lumber following a dispute over wearing a mask in the store.
Oeltjenbruns left the store and was seen by an officer at the Walmart parking lot a short time later. The officer attempted to stop the vehicle, and a slow-speed pursuit ensued in the Hutchinson Mall, South Grade Road, and Highway 15 South.
Police stopped the vehicle in the area of Highway 15 and Freemont Avenue. Officer Steven Sickmann, a 31-year veteran of the Hutchinson Police Department, engaged the suspect through the driver’s window. Still, Sickmann became trapped in the window, and Oeltjenbruns took off at a high rate of speed with the officer hanging onto the vehicle.
According to the press release, Sickmann was struck in the head with a hammer during the struggle. He was taken to Hutchinson Health and has since been released and is recovering at home.
Police stopped the vehicle again near Highway 15 and South Grade Road, and Oeltjenbruns was arrested at the scene and taken to McLeod County Jail. He was booked on first-degree assault, and additional charges are being considered as the case remains under investigation by the McLeod County Sheriff’s Office.
