Man Pleads Guilty In Police Car Ramming At Centennial Bridge


A Davenport man accused of ramming a police car on the Centennial Bridge in Davenport has entered a guilty plea.

Back in August, 2011, Michael Cross was convicted of leading police on a chase that began with a shooting investigation near the Mississippi Valley Fairgrounds and ended when police formed a road block at the foot of the Centennial Bridge.

Michael Cross pleaded guilty Monday, June 17, 2013 to a charge of assault on a police officer with a dangerous weapon and received a 5 year sentence. Cross had previously been found guilty by a jury on the same charge, but the Iowa Court of Appeals ordered a new trial saying the trial court allowed prejudicial statements and that drug charges against Cross should have been dismissed because of a lack of evidence.

According to Scott County Attorney Michael Walton, Cross pleaded guilty without any negotiation or concessions.
