Police Chief Dave Archer told The Brazil Times witnesses reported a red truck turned north off of Jackson Street onto Washington Street and hit a marked squad car while parked on the department's parking lot at Brazil City Hall around 7 p.m., Tuesday,.
"It was a reserve squad car intended to be used for new hires," Archer said about the vehicle that sustained extensive damage. "The insurance company has been notified and we expect a (claim adjuster) to be at the department within a few days."
Witnesses said the truck immediately fled the scene north on Washington, crossing National Avenue.
Officials confirmed the BPD and the Clay County Sheriff's Department were able to locate the red truck within a few minutes due to the help of several citizens, which was found at 609 N. Walnut St.
Jail officials confirmed Froderman has bonded out ($7,000 with 10 percent allowed) to await formal court proceedings.
