Dothan police searching for suspect in officer assault

Local News

DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — The search is on for a suspect in an assault on police officers during a traffic stop Monday.

The Dothan Police Department said in a release that their officers stopped Brandon Rashawn McGhee on the 2100 block of Montgomery Highway, around the Dothan Motor Lodge and O’Reilly Autoparts.

McGhee reportedly tossed some narcotics in his back seat at this point, and when the two officers tried to put him in handcuffs, he fought back, punching the officers and running away.

Court records show McGhee has a criminal record, pleading guilty to first-degree burglary in 2009. He was released on parole last August.

If you know where he is, call the DPD at 334-615-3000.
