Scott-On September 19, 2019, Broc Rogers, age 33, of Scottsburg, entered into the Scott County Jail Lobby and stated he had a Warrant for his arrest showing on the Sheriff’s Website. Once Patti Combs, Scott County Sheriff’s Office Jailer, advised him indeed he did have a “Writ of Attachment” warranting his arrest, he stated that he wasn't going to jail. Rogers then lunged at Deputy Donald Spicer, (who arrived to assist), and Jailer Combs, striking both of them, he then fled the lobby. A foot pursuit started and at one point, Rogers stopped and turned around to confront officers again.
