SIOUX FALLS, South Dakota — A Wagner police officer knocked unconscious during a traffic stop on Friday says he hopes to return to duty within a week.
Officer Brian McGuire on Monday was being released from the Sioux Falls hospital where he was treated for bleeding on the brain. He issued a statement thanking well-wishers and fellow law officers.
Fifty-five-year-old Richard Golus, of Lake Andes, allegedly punched McGuire after being stopped for running a red light. He remained in custody Monday. It wasn't clear if he had an attorney.
