     Sheriff Scott Keeler stated on Oct. 9, a St. Clair County warrant was issued for Kory Clemons, 20, Rockville, charging him with class A felony assault on a law enforcement officer and a class D felony of resisting arrest. Bond on these charges is set at $100,000 cash only.

     The charges stem from an incident in the early morning hours on Oct. 7, when St. Clair County deputies were dispatched to the Appleton City area in reference to a sighting of a stolen vehicle. Corporal Jason Matter located the vehicle traveling on Highway 52 in Appleton City. The vehicle stopped in the parking lot of the Appleton City School and Deputy Dale Roberts arrived on scene to assist Matter. The deputies ordered Clemons out of the vehicle. Clemons brandished a firearm and deputies ordered him to drop the firearm several times. Clemons refused, raised the firearm and fired at deputies. The deputies returned fire, striking him multiple times.

     The sheriff explained the deputies were not injured in the incident and are on paid administrative leave. Clemons was transported to a Kansas City hospital. The Missouri State Highway Patrol Division of Drug and Crime Control were called into to conduct the investigation on the incident.  

     On Oct. 8, a warrant was issued charging Clemons with class C felony stealing a motor vehicle and stealing of a firearm. Bond on these charges is set at $50,000 cash or surety. These charges stem from an incident on Oct. 6, when a St. Clair County deputy took a report on SW 76 Road in reference to a stolen vehicle and firearm. David Oehring stated Clemons, a guest at his residence, stole a 1992 blue Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck from his driveway and a .22 caliber semi-auto rifle from a closet in the residence.
