A Leavenworth man has been convicted of battering a law enforcement officer and other charges, according to a news release from the County Attorney's Office.

Orville W. Sieg, 47, was found guilty Monday of a felony charge of interference with a law enforcement officer and misdemeanor counts of battery on a law enforcement officer, driving with a suspended license, criminal damage to property and reckless driving.

The verdict came at the conclusion of a trial in Leavenworth County District Court.

The charges stemmed from a July 29, 2017, incident in Leavenworth. Sieg reportedly was in a vehicle at a convenience store at 300 N. Fourth St. when a police officer attempted to take him into custody for an arrest warrant for a drug charge, according to the news release from County Attorney Todd Thompson.

Sieg reportedly resisted arrest and placed the car in drive while the officer was partially inside the vehicle. The officer was dragged as the car exited onto Miami Street. Sieg reportedly struck the officer, attempting to dislodge him from the vehicle.

The officer was thrown from the vehicle onto Miami Street, suffering injuries to his knees, right forearm and one of his hands.

A hearing is scheduled for June 15 to take up post-trial motions in the case. Sentencing is scheduled for July 6.

In March, Sieg was convicted of possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia, according to Thompson.
