Trooper Walks Away Following Shootout With Dutzow Bank Robber

A Missouri State Highway Patrol Trooper is expected to walk away from a shootout last Friday with only bruises thanks to his bulletproof vest. 64 year old Warren Gladders was charged in Warren County on Saturday with first-degree assault against a law enforcement officer, two counts of armed criminal action, first-degree robbery and possession of a stolen sawed-off shotgun. According to police, Gladders robbed the First Bank of Dutzow around 9:20 a.m. and drove away on Highway 94. Authorities said the trooper pulled over Gladders, who got out of his vehicle and started shooting at the trooper, hitting him multiple times in the chest. The trooper returned fire, striking Gladders at least once in his lower body. Deputies said the bullets did not penetrate the trooper’s body because he was wearing a vest.
