TEXARKANA, Texas (AP) - Family and friends were set to hold a funeral service for an East Texas police officer who died after being hit by a truck during a disturbance at a park.

The service for Texarkana police officer William Jason Sprague is set for 10 a.m. Wednesday in Texarkana at First Baptist Church.

Burial with police honors will follow at Oak Ridge Cemetery in Malvern, Ark.

Sprague was hurt early Friday morning while responding to a call of about fights that broke out at a park. The 30-year-old officer died on Saturday.

Police arrested 21-year-old Justin Sanders on Friday and authorities charged him with aggravated assault on a public servant. Authorities say the charge could be upgraded.
