SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO AM) - An off-duty Sioux Falls policeman was allegedly assaulted by a man who had forced the officer's car off the road Sunday afternoon near 69th and Louise.
Officer Sam Clemens says 27-year-old Faron Regan Rehm is accused of turning into the officer's lane forcing him to take evasive action.
Clemens says the officer, who had his family with him, followed Rehm to apartments on West 85th Street. Once they got into the parking lot, the officer identified himself and Rehm started fighting. Rehm went back to his car, got a knife and threatened the officer who was able to get it away from his hand.
Clemens says the officer was not injured and officers arrested Rehm once they arrived on scene.
Rehm is charged with aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer and reckless driving.
