A Spink County man wanted for aggravated assault in connection with an incident involving a South Dakota Highway Patrol trooper is in the custody of the local Sheriff.
The Highway Patrol and Spink County Sheriff's Office took 46-year-old Randall Jungwirth into custody shortly after 12 p.m. on Wednesday after he was located in an abandoned trailer on a farm near Ashton.
Spink County States Attorney Vic Fischbach had said earlier that Jungwirth was sought on a charge of aggravated assault after allegedly pulling a shotgun on a trooper who was checking on a stopped vehicle on a county road on Monday evening.
Fischbach did not immediately return a message seeking comment.
The Spink County Sheriff's Office says it is unclear when Jungwirth will appear in court. He is in the Spink County Jail.
