(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) A man was arrested Friday night in connection to assaulting one Buchanan County law enforcement officer and hitting another with his car.

Jason Roberts was arrested about 11 p.m. according to Buchanan County Sheriff Bill Puett.

On Wednesday, Drug Task Force investigators and officers approached Roberts at Casey's Gas Station near Hyde Park. Roberts had an outstanding warrant and was the target of a drug investigation, Puett said.

Roberts assaulted one investigator, got into his car, backed into another investigator and then rammed a Drug Task Force car before he fled, Puett said. 


The officers suffered minor injuries. No charges have been filed yet.

We are waking up to mostly cloudy skies and temperatures into the middle to upper 60s this Monday morning. Monday is looking to be another dry & quiet day for us with partly sunny skies skies. Showers and a few thunderstorms are expected to develop to our south near Kansas City and the I-70 corridor so we can't rule out a slim chance for a stray shower for us. Highs are going to be a few degrees below average in the lower 80s.
