A Bradley County deputy sheriff was punched in the face Saturday morning and David Paul Kadlec is wanted for the assault.
Deputy Tiffany Goodwin was involved in a foot pursuit on Georgetown Road near the Meigs County line, when Kadlec, punched her in the face. He was being sought on a violation of a probation warrant out of Bradley County.
Kadlec is described as being 5’10” and 175 pounds.
Sheriff Watson urged citizens not to approach Kadlec, but to call 911. He said, “We aren’t sure if Kadlec is armed; however we consider him to be dangerous, in that if he will strike an officer, he certainly might seek to injure a private citizen.”
He will face additional charges upon his arrest. “We want to get Mr. Kadlec off the streets and in jail,” Sheriff Watson said.
