Man Severs Fingertip

Associated Press - December 28, 2013 10:59 am

The man suspected of running over a Wichita police officer during a pursuit is now charged with aggravated battery of a law enforcement officer.

Wichita police say a man lost a fingertip when he tried to reach into a car to get his stolen wallet back.

Police say that the wallet was taken from the victim’s unlocked car early Friday. When the man reached into the car driven by the thief, police said, the thief rolled up the window and drove off.

The victim was treated at a Wichita hospital. Police say he lost the tip of his left index finger.
