CLEAR LAKE – A Nora Springs man caused minor injuries to two Clear Lake police officers at a traffic stop early Monday morning.
According to police Chief Greg Peterson, Matthew Leon Regan, age 19, was stopped by Clear Lake police in the 800 or 900 block of 2nd Ave N. at about 2 AM this morning.
“When they went to arrest him he resisted and two of my officers received minor scrapes,” Peterson said today.
Regan has had other recent brushes with the law. He was charged in December of 2011 with conspiracy to manufacture a controlled substance when authorities discovered a meth lab in his vehicle. Regan is represented by Colin Murphy of Clear Lake in that case, which is still in court.
SUBJECT IS INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY.
