Timothy Allen Braden

Deputy Sheriff Timothy Braden was killed in a vehicle crash as he pursued a vehicle on Barkada Road, northwest of Monticello, at approximately 1:30 am.

The vehicle fled when Deputy Braden attempted to conduct a traffic stop on it. As the pursuit continued along Barkada Road the subject threw narcotics out of the window. The suspect's vehicle and Deputy Braden's vehicle both went out of control as they rounded a bend and struck objects on the side of the road.

Deputy Braden was transported to Drew Memorial Hospital where he succumbed to his injuries. The driver of the vehicle was taken into custody and charged with murder, several narcotics charges, and felony fleeing to elude.

Deputy Braden had served with the Drew County Sheriff's Office for only six months and had previously served with the McGehee Police Department for three years. He is survived by his wife and four children.
