Staceyville man in trouble for second time

mitchell county sheriffSTACYVILLE, IOWA – A Stacyville man who once fought a Mitchell county deputy and ended up injuring a police dog now must pay a big fine for illegally dumping tires.

Gary Eggers, age 60 of Stacyville, has been ordered by a judge to pay $100,000. He allegedly had been dumping tires into a creek and illegally on his property. He is barred from dumping more tires and must clean up his mess.

Eggers was in trouble back in March of 2014, when a sheriff’s deputy from the Mitchell County Sheriff’s Office went to Gary Eggers’ home to serve Eggers with an arrest warrant and to take him into custody. When Eggers saw the deputy, he initially drove his vehicle down his driveway as though to leave the property, before reversing course away from the deputy, who had parked at the end of Eggers’ driveway, back toward his house. The deputy-seeking to intimidate Eggers—took his service dog, Winnie, out of the car, and the two began running toward the house. Eggers exited his vehicle and walked to the house. A struggle ensued, with Eggers inside the house and the deputy and his dog outside trying to force their way into the house. During this struggle, Winnie’s rear paw got stuck in the door jamb of Eggers’ door, causing her to yelp once. The door was opened and closed twice. When the deputy informed Eggers the dog’s paw was stuck in the door, Eggers opened the door to allow the dog to be freed and then shut the door again. Winnie sustained cuts to the padding of her paw as a result. She was taken to a veterinarian for treatment, where she received stitches. She was off duty for two weeks to recover. Eggers was charged with more crimes due to that incident and later lost an appeal after a jury found him guilty.
