SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO AM) - Add drug charges to the laundry list against 31-year-old Rocky Traversie after Wednesday’s assaults against family and Sioux Falls police.
Officer Sam Clemens says investigators found almost 6 grams of cocaine on Traversie after fighting with three policemen. Traversie is charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute.
Clemens says no blood tests were taken after the incident so it’s unknown if Traversie was abusing cocaine.
He’s also charged with kidnapping and aggravated assault against law enforcement.
Traversie's mother and sister both refused an ambulance saying they'll seek treatment on their own. He's accused of hitting them with a brick, his mother in the leg and his sister in the face.
