Lexington Police are searching for a man who allegedly punched a police officer during a traffic stop and then sped off.
It happened Sunday afternoon on I-64 at the 82 mile marker. Lexington Police say 20-year-old Bryce Anthony Ricketts was pulled over for wreckless driving. They say he got out of the black Mercedes he was driving in, punched the officer and then took off.
The officer's injuries are non-life threatening, but there's still a warrant out for Ricketts' arrest. Police were searching in Montgomery County because they suspect he was headed that way.
Ricketts is 20-years-old.
