Enrico Darius Taylor, 52, of St. Paul, was arrested on suspicion of felony criminal vehicular operation after he allegedly drove over Staff Sgt. Travis Torgerson, 42, of Circle Pines and Staff Sgt. Michael Stroud, 29, of Brooklyn Center, and dragging Torgerson for nearly a mile Tuesday in Roseville, the St. Paul (Minn.) Pioneer Press reported.
Stroud and Torgerson are expected to survive, Army spokesperson said, although, Torgerson was undergoing skin grafts at a Minneapolis hospital.
Lirico Fennell, Taylor's son, said his father shouldn't have been driving, as he is legally blind.
"It sounds like he was driving, and people were coming up on his right side or whatever side he got that glass eye on, and he couldn't see them. There was no possible way he could have seen those folks," said Fennell, 35. "When he hit them, he panicked."
Roseville Police Department spokesman Lt. Lorne Rosand said police in the area are familiar with Taylor.
"We've been dealing with him for three years, and he just keeps coming back," Rosand said. "The guy is a menace, period."
If charged and convicted, Taylor faces up to five years imprisonment and a fine of $10,000.
