Rural Boone County Man Faces Charges

Posted on 10 September 2013 by KWBG

BOONE, Iowa—A rural Boone County man faces multiple charges after a tentative stand-off with law enforcement personnel Monday evening.  Chief Deputy Rick Lampe says the incident began when the Boone County Communication Center received several reports of a reckless driver on County Road E-26.  A Boone County Deputy and Ogden Police Officer located the vehicle with 50-year old Ron Paul Dickerson of rural Boone County north of Ogden.  Dickerson threatened the deputy and officer with a large knife.  He fled the scene with authorities in pursuit.  Dickerson’s car had sustained damage from an earlier accident which did lead to a blow out, causing the car to plunge into a ravine ending up on it’s roof.  Lampe says efforts were made to get Dickerson out of the car, but he continued to make threats against law enforcement personnel.  Because of his minor injuries, his continued threats to officers and himself, Lampe says it was decided to pull the car out of the ditch.  Once the car was upright, Lampe said Dickerson was taken into custody with the use of a Tazer.  He was transported to the Boone County Hospital for evaluation and eventually was released to deputies and taken to the Boone County Jail.  Charges were still pending as of early Tuesday.   Lampe said the entire incident lasted about three hours.
