A Wartburg police captain died Monday of injuries he sustained in a scuffle 10 days earlier, according to The Knoxville News Sentinel.
Capt. Ralph Braden, 58, died at approximately 8 p.m. at Methodist Medical Center of Oak Ridge.
He became engaged in a struggle after the suspect, Eddie Dean Patterson, attempted to escape from a first-story window on April 22 during a domestic dispute call.
Braden suffered what were described to be "serious life-threatening injuries."
Patterson fled on foot after the incident and was arrested about 14 hours later.
He was charged with aggravated assault on a police officer following the incident and officials plan to charge him in connection to his death.
