    Idaho State Police...Officer Down

    An Idaho State Trooper was shot and injured early this morning in Twin Falls.
    "We all felt a sense of loss and a sense of pain today,” Idaho State Region Four Police Captain, Kedrick Wills said in a press conference Wednesday afternoon.
    When 34–year-old Chris Glenn of Twin Falls left for work today, he didn't know what lie ahead.
    "As he was checking into service he heard…what was believed to be an armed robbery," Colonel Dan Charbeneau said at a presss conference in Boise where Glenn was hospitalized.
    Around 7am 24–year-old Adam Ted Mower of Twin Falls brought a semi–automatic into this Stinker Station and asked clerk Coleen Gooch to empty the till before fleeing the scene with over $500.
    Trooper Glenn stopped him just a few miles off highway 74 south of Twin Falls.
    Police say mower shot Glenn once in the neck.
    "Twin falls P.D. arrived after and found Glenn shot. A high speed pursuit ensued which led to Jackpot Nevada where it was involved in a collision."
    Elko County Sheriff's office say they deployed a spike strip just north of Jackpot.
    Mower made it as far as the Four Jacks Casino going over 100 miles per hour.
    Officers say he hit the rear of a trailer truck, sending him into the air and skidding several hundred yards.
    Mower was sent to St. Luke’s Magic Valley Regional Center in Twin Falls, his condition is unknown.
    Trooper Glenn, who has been with the force four years, was life flighted to St. Alphonsus in Boise.
    "He was awake alert and I told him I love him,” Charboneau said.
    Charboneau says the family has asked to keep Glenn’s condition private.
    "I have met with the family...I told them they’re in all our thoughts and prayers,” Governor Jim Risch said in Boise.
    Mower has been charged with aggravated battery on a police officer,
    fleeing or attempting to elude a police officer, and robbery.

    Lately:

    Idaho State Trooper Chris Glenn has a long road to recovery after being shot in the neck Wednesday during a traffic stop in Twin Falls.
    Idaho State Police Captain Kendrick Wills said Glenn was shot once in the neck just above his bullet proof vest.
    The shot caused damage to his trachea, esophagus and spine.
    An emergency surgery on Wednesday repaired much of the neck damage, but doctors are still unsure of his long–term condition.
    Captain wills expressed the family’s deep thanks for all the love and support that has poured in from the community.
    Glenn was a teacher and assistant football coach at Kimberly High School before joining the force.
    A fund has been set up in his name at Wells Fargo Bank to assist the family.
    The man accused of shooting Glenn Wednesday morning was brought back to Twin Falls today after a brief stay at a Boise hospital.
    24–year–old Adam Ted Mower of Twin Falls was arraigned on three charges including aggravated battery on a police officer, eluding a peace officer and robbery.
    Mower took Twin Falls Police on a high speed chase ending in Jackpot, Nevada after shooting trooper Glenn.
    He is being held at the Twin Falls County Jail.

    My father is retired ISP (73-94). I'm also an Idaho cop, but not ISP. My wife wanted me to work for a department that speedy backup is a possibility. This one one of the reasons that I joined a city department. Plus I'm not really a road dog.

    The ISP troopers have alot of territory to cover and frequently they have to do it without the possibility of speedy backup. It isn't unusual for the assisting officer to be twenty or thirty minutes away in some parts of the state. They have a tough job. Best wishes for a speedy recovery.

    Here is the latest as of Friday

    Trooper suffered injuries to spine, trachea and esophagus

    05:07 PM MST on Friday, December 22, 2006





    ISP

    Idaho State Police trooper Chris Glenn was shot in the neck during a traffic stop south of Twin Falls Wednesday. He is in serious condition in a Boise hospital.

    BOISE -- Idaho State Police trooper Chris Glenn has been upgraded from critical to serious condition at a Boise hospital.

    Glenn was shot in the neck during a traffic stop early Wednesday morning on Highway 74 near Twin Falls while trying to apprehend a man wanted for robbing a convenience store.

    Adam Mower was later arrested after a police pursuit and crashing his vehicle in Jackpot, Nevada.

    Mower has been charged with aggravated battery of an officer, fleeing or attempting to elude a police officer and robbery. He was arraigned Friday and his bond set at $1 million. He remains in the Twin Falls County Jail.

    Glenn's family says the bullet entered the trooper's neck just above his bulletproof vest and did serious damage to his trachea, esophagus and spine.

    He underwent surgery Dec. 20th to repair the damage to his neck and will need future operations to determine the extent of the injuries to his spine.

    A fund has been set up for those wanting to help the Glenn family. You can go to any Wells Fargo Bank branch to donate. Do so to the Chris Glenn benefit fund.

    Idaho State Police and the family say they are grateful for the outpouring of support they have received from the community so far.


    The Glenn family released this statement to the media and public today:


    We would like to express our appreciation for the tremendous outpouring of support, the well-wishes, and many prayers by the countless people who have shown concern for Chris. We have also been tremendously gratified at the love and concern shown by the law enforcement and public safety community. It is clear that Chris is highly regarded and loved by his brothers and sisters who also wear the uniform.


    Chris received a single shot to the neck just above his bullet-proof vest. He received injury to his trachea and esophagus as well as some spinal damage. On Wednesday (12/20) surgery repaired much of the damage to the neck, and future surgery will be required to determine the extent of damage to the spine. We are still unsure of his long-term prognosis and know there is still a long road to recovery. We ask that you continue to keep Chris in your thoughts and prayers as he continues to heal.


    Chris is a tremendous asset to his community. We have learned this week how much he is loved and appreciated. His involvement with young people in his community as a teacher, football coach, and in many other areas of service makes us tremendously proud of him. He took that public service to a different level when he decided to become a State Trooper. We have always supported him in that dream and are tremendously proud of him, even more so now as we have witnessed his dedication and courage.


    The Idaho State Police is continuing to care for his immediate needs. We know that there will be long-term needs however and are deeply appreciative of of the heartfelt support we have received.


    We would ask the media to respect our request for privacy during this difficult time. Again, we cannot express our appreciation for the love and support of all of you.


    Thank you
    Any day above ground is a fine day indeed!

    Never take life seriously. Nobody gets out alive anyway.

    Some states do not have the charge of attempted murder. they have agg. battery or agg assault. Which carry the same penalties.

    Yeah, and earlier that night there was ATL out for him for being suicidal and confirmed that he was carring a 9mm. But I think because of shift change he didn't hear this and my question is....

    WHY did he approach the vehicle when the guy just robbed a gas station at GUN POINT?!?!

    In Michigan, other than 1st deg. premeditated murder, the penalties for attempted murder on an LEO are greater than all the other degrees of actual murder charges...a guy could come home, get into a fight with his neighbor and kill him, then take a shot at an arresting officer and he'll draw more time for the shooting at the LEO than he will for the murder.

    Trooper Glenn is paralyzed. The Boise Police Department is having a fund raiser for him. Unfortunately he probably will not be returning to duty. The employe association at my department has also donated money. Not a happy ending this time.

    I'm assuming you agree with this?
