Waterloo officer actions just in officer-involved shooting case, attorney general finds

Posted: Updated:

The Iowa Attorney General's Office has found the Waterloo officer actions just in the case of Brandon Seeley.

In November, Waterloo Police and the Tri-County Drug Task Force were conducting a meth investigation involving Waterloo man Brandon Seeley.

During the course of the investigation, officers tried to conduct a traffic stop with Seeley, but Seeley failed to stop.

Seeley led officers on a high-speed chase through neighborhoods in Waterloo, even entering a local law firm.

When in the parking lot, Seeley's vehicle was blocked by a police car, and an officer approached him on foot.

When officers told Seeley to get on the ground, Seeley ignored the commands, and drove directly toward the standing police officer.

As Seeley drove toward the  Waterloo officer, the officer fired four shots through the driver side window, according to authorities.

Three rounds hit Seeley, but they failed to stop him from driving away.

Seeley continued the chase with officers, before eventually stopping at a home he lived in with his girlfriend, Chelsea Brocka.

He was then taken into custody.

The Attorney General's Office has reviewed the case with the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation, and reports the officer did not violate any laws, stating the officer felt his life and the lives of other officers were in danger.

The Waterloo officer's name is being withheld because of his position on the Tri-County Drug Task Force.

Seeley has been charged with possession and intent to deliver, eluding, and assault on a peace officer.
