On May 10, 2011, Sergeant Brian Dulle was struck and killed by a suspect's vehicle while deploying stop-sticks at the intersection of US 42 and Utica Road in Lebanon, OH. The pursuit was initiated by the Franklin Police Department. The suspect ran a cruiser off the road on US 42 prior to striking Sergeant Dulle. After striking the officer, the suspect fled the scene on foot but was later arrested. Sergeant Dulle's killer was convicted of murder and several other charges in October 2011 and was sentenced to 25 years in prison. Speeds in the chase through Franklin, Springboro and Waynesville exceeded 100 mph and there were skid marks at the crash site that stretched for 65 feet.
Sergeant Dulle was a US Army veteran who had served with the Warren County Sheriff's Office for 12 years and was promoted to the rank of sergeant in 2005. He was a graduate of Edgewood High School and Miami University. With the assistance of the staff at Butler Tech, the “Brian Dulle Memorial Award” was established in his memory to recognize outstanding Police Cadets at Butler Tech Peace Officer Academy where Brian was a 1998 graduate. He is survived by his wife, three children, his parents, and two siblings.
In 2011, shortly after Sgt Dulle's death, Richard “Gunny” Diefendorfer approached Powder Keg Harley-Davidson about doing a memorial ride in Brian's memory. The dealership asked Frank Fuller, HOG Chapter director at the time to help out. It was decided it would be best for the chapter to take the lead, and Frank has been ride coordinator from the beginning. The Iron Shields were asked to be a co-sponsor in 2013. Corey Herren has served as the Iron Shield ride coordinator.
