Deputy assaulted while intervening in domestic dispute

By Tara Lindquist

A Dodge County Deputy is recovering from injuries and a Dodge Center man is in custody as a result of a domestic dispute on Dec. 30.

Deputy Jeff Brion, a resident of Byron, was dispatched to a residence in Dodge Center on a report of an assault in progress.

The criminal complaint against Trevor Earl Broitzman alleges that Broitzman assaulted his cousin and grandmother before deputies were called to the scene. Upon arriving at the residence, Brion made contact with the juvenile cousin who appeared to be distraught. The cousin stated the defendant had hit him.

Brion noted Broitzman's grandmother was bleeding from behind the ear, which had happened when Broitzman threw her down on the floor before Brion arrived, the complaint said.

Brion went upstairs and made contact with Broitzman as he was exiting his bedroom. He was carrying clothes and when he saw Brion he told Brion to leave, to leave him alone and that he was leaving.

Brion informed Broitzman he was under arrest and began giving commands to Broitzman, which Broitzman failed to comply with, the complaint said.

Brion drew his taser and Broitzman told Brion to "f*** off" and attempted to shut the door. Brion kept the door open and ordered Broitzman to get on the ground.

The complaint said Broitzman became more aggressive, yelling at Brion and asking the deputy if "he wanted to go?"
