Muncie man charged in attacks on 2 officers

MUNCIE – A central Indiana man who allegedly attacked two police officers following a fight outside a nightclub faces attempted murder and other charges.

Thirty-two-year-old Bryan William Modglin was formally charged Friday in Delaware County with attempted murder, battery and driving while under the influence of a controlled substance in last weekend’s attack. Court documents say the Muncie man was under the influence of cocaine and amphetamines during the alleged attacks on Sept. 22.

The Star Press reports that Modglin is a convicted felon with a lengthy criminal record.

He allegedly attacked two police officers who pulled his car over following a fight at a nightclub and began strangling one of the officers. The other officer suffered a broken eye socket.

Police shot Modglin twice to end the attack.
