Injured police officer bounces back from setbacks
Wichita police Officer Brian Arterburn on Tuesday reached another milestone in his recovery from grave injuries sustained earlier this year. He was flown to a rehabilitation center in Texas.
Arterburn is being moved to Touchstone in Texas, according to a Facebook post published Tuesday night.
Arterburn, a 25-year police veteran, was a first-shift beat officer assigned to the department’s Patrol South bureau at the time he was hurt.
The man allegedly driving the vehicle, Justin Terrazas, 31, is facing criminal charges of aggravated battery against a law enforcement officer and other felonies in connection with the case.
