For the first time Wednesday, an Army recruiter spoke to interviewers about how he survived being dragged for nearly a mile by a hit-and-run driver.
The man who pleaded guilty to running down two Army recruiters at a Roseville crosswalk last year was sentenced to more than 15 years in prison. In November, Enrico Taylor pleaded guilty to one count of first-degree assault and one count of second-degree assault over the Sept. 17 incident.
The man accused of running down two Army recruiters with a Jeep last month in Roseville now faces two additional charges that could, following a conviction, add decades to his prison sentence.
Ramsey County Attorney John Choi calls it a disturbing and shocking case. A Minneapolis man with a lengthy criminal record ran down two Army recruiters at a Roseville crosswalk on Tuesday, dragging one of the men nearly three-quarters of a mile.
Ramsey County prosecutors will consider charges against a man accused of striking two U.S. Army recruiters and dragging one of them under his SUV. Police say the two uniformed recruiters were struck Tuesday afternoon as they walked near the Crossroads shopping center in Roseville.
