St. Cloud Man Pleads Not Guilty in South Dakota Officer Attack

Court ActionCANTON, S.D. (AP) – Two Minnesota men accused of attacking the assistant police chief in the southeastern South Dakota city of Canton have pleaded not guilty.

Thirty-year-old Jordan Blevins, of St. Cloud, and 23-year-old Samuel Miland, of Spring Valley, face charges of assault, resisting arrest and obstruction of an officer in the Oct. 17 incident. Both men are to stand trial in mid-March.

Authorities allege that Miland assaulted Assistant Police Chief Dave Jacobs during a traffic stop and that Blevins scuffled with Lincoln County deputies who responded to the scene to provide backup.

Jacobs suffered a broken nose, scrapes and bruises. He returned to work a week later.
