RICHMOND, MO – Subpoenas were issued Thursday in preparation for the trial of a Richmond man.

A jury trial is scheduled for late April to determine a case against Eric Hertzig, 52, who is charged with assault causing serious injury to an officer, and resisting arrest by fleeing. A probable cause statement suggests the incident followed an attempted traffic stop in Ray County from October 2017. A deputy claimed to have been dragged behind the vehicle as Hertzig accelerated. Gunshots were also fired by the deputy into the cab of the vehicle while Hertzig was attempting to flee. Hertzig received wounds from the gunfire and the deputy reported injuries to his head and legs.
