Taylor Co. SO arrests suspect alleging attempted murder
Four KSP Post 15 officers were on scene. Danger to officers heightened by severe weather conditions, with lightning, wind, and hail. Location of incident is in the Saloma Road area, at what has been described as a 'million dollar house.' Suspect is a school bus driver for Taylor County Schools.
Note: An arrest is not a finding of guilt. An individual who is arrested is detained in order to answer for an alleged or suspected crime, and should be presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
