Byron man facing multiple charges after incident with Dodge County deputies Thursday

(ABC 6 News) – A Byron man is facing multiple charges after an incident with Dodge County deputies on Thursday.

James Lloyd House, 31, is facing charges of trespassing, fleeing a peace officer in a motor vehicle, fleeing a peace officer by means other than a motor vehicle, and 4th-degree assault on a peace officer.

According to court documents, a Dodge County deputy was dispatched to The Crossroads apartment complex in Dodge Center on Thursday after a call was made regarding House being on the property despite being trespassed from the property.

Court documents say the deputy knocked on an apartment door where House was located. The deputy explained to House he was not legally allowed at the premises and would need to leave. House began to plead with the deputy to allow him to leave, and when he didn’t get the response he was looking for, he allegedly wrestled and pushed the deputy who lost his balance allowing House to flee.

The deputy pursued House on foot, withdrawing his taser. House was able to get into his vehicle and allegedly drove toward the deputy, not stopping. A city road grader pulled into a cul-de-sac, preventing House from driving away.

A second Dodge County deputy arrived to assist and the two deputies were able to get House out of his vehicle and arrest him.

House is currently in the Olmsted County Adult Detention Center. He was scheduled to make his first court appearance on Friday.
