Combine altercation leads to court date
A Marion contractor is scheduled to appear in court today on battery charges related to a June 19 incident.
Sheriff Robert Craft said Dax Kannady allegedly forced his way into the cab of a neighbor’s combine, grabbed a then-17-year-old by the shirt, and shook him.
The boy’s name has not been released, but police reports indicate he is 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighs 120 pounds.
The incident took place on Pawnee Rd. between 250th and 260th Rds. The combine was not moving at the time, Craft said.
Craft said the teen and his family initially didn’t want to file a report, but further interaction between Kannady and the family led to a change of mind. The incident was reported to the sheriff’s office June 21.
