FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KNWA/KFTA) — The man accused of shooting a Prairie Grove police officer pleads not guilty.
Nickolas Colbert appeared before a judge in Washington County today where he was appointed a public defender.
He’s due back in court on August 31.
Police say Colbert shot officer Tyler Franks multiple times in both legs when Franks responded to a domestic disturbance call at Colbert’s home in May.
Franks had to have part of his leg amputated as a result of his injuries.
