CLAYTON • The second of three men accused of throwing a tire iron and bricks at two police officers in Dellwood during the Ferguson protests in 2014 was sentenced Friday to 120 days of “shock time” in jail, followed by five years on probation.

Authorities say Korey Haulcy, 22, was among three who threw bricks and a tire iron at St. Louis County police officers Nov. 25, 2014, just hours after the announcement that a grand jury declined to indict a Ferguson police officer for killing 18-year-old Michael Brown.

After the incident at Chambers Road and Floridale Avenue, the men jumped in a car, but police surrounded it before it could get away, police said. The men jumped out and ran, leaving the driver. They were caught when police let the driver go and followed her until she picked up the three men, documents say.

All three, who lived in an apartment complex in the 10800 block of Lookaway Drive in north St. Louis County at the time, were charged with attempted assault on a law enforcement officer and resisting arrest.

Haulcy pleaded guilty Nov. 20.

“Given his young age, the five years’ probation is appropriate,” his lawyer Derrick Williams said Friday.

Haulcy received the same punishment as Cedric James, 23, who was sentenced in October.

The case against Andrew L. Brady, 27, is still pending.
