He had been indicted earlier this year for taking off during a traffic stop and injuring a Parma office. But the new charge makes it a first-degree felony.

The Cuyahoga County Prosecutors Office shared the following statement on the new Jackson indictment with the FOX 8 I-Team:

“A clerical error was made in the original indictment as the victim in the case is a peace officer. The peace officer language was inadvertently omitted so the case was represented to include that and was true-billed by the Grand Jury. Due to the victim being a peace officer, the felonious assault charge is a first-degree felony.”
