Man Arrested in Death of Johnson County Sheriff’s Deputy

KSAL StaffSeptember 12, 2016

A man has been arrested in the death of a Johnson County Sheriff’s deputy after crashing into his stopped patrol car.

Overland Park Police spokesman, Officer John Lacy, says the 38-year-old suspect is jailed on suspicion of reckless second-degree murder in the death of Master Deputy Brandon Collins.

The crash happened Sunday after the 45-year-old Collins stopped a driver for a traffic infraction on U.S. 69. Lacy says Collins had made contact with the driver and returned to his vehicle when it was rear-ended. Collins died at the scene. No one else was hurt.

Lacy says the suspect fled on foot and was captured in the area.

The results of a drug and alcohol tests are pending. Lacy said he didn’t know if the suspect had an attorney.
