“It appears that a male was driving a car and police had cause to engage their emergency equipment and summon the male to stop at the junction of Highwood Lane and Lover’s Lane.

“The suspect then stopped his car and police began to process him. He suddenly reversed his car, hitting an officer that was standing beside his door, causing the officer to fall.

“He then reversed down the one way at a high rate of speed and hit a car that had stopped in the road and then slammed into two neighbors walls.

  2. smh says:

    Someone didn’t wanna get caught…and if a Female and Child were present why not ask them!?

    • NO MORE WAR says:

      Smh, you are a class act. And what you have said makes no sense. Duh obviously the police asked the passenger who the driver was if they didn’t know already. Seriously u can’t make this stuff up.

  3. Gabbs says:

  5. Awesome says:

    So he abandoned a female passenger and child. Classy guy.

    • Legalgal says:

      Weird how the passengers haven’t named him. Much easier to locate if the police name him.

    Run forest Run

  7. Sara says:

    How in gods name was he able to escape??? Really you have got to be kidding me what a joke.

    • Jim says:

      I’m assuming the other officer was not gonna leave his partner lying on the ground to chase after this clown..Or maybe the officer was working solo…

      Assuming you know any of the details makes you the joke.

    • enforcer says:

      Please think before you write!!!!He knocked the officer over, the officer may have been a motorcycle cop by himself!!! If there was an additional officer IMO his first priority should be to his fallen colleague. But you or I wouldn’t know that. If he jumped out and ran,and you are familiar with the area, there are several places he conceal himself or get out of the area and ESCAPE!!! Think about it, its not a joke.

    The car will be impounded by the police, owner contacted to determine wheth er or not the car was stolen. At this point the driver might as well give himself up. He escaped for only a short while, after running an officer down, he will face the wrath of the Court. It will be crazy for the lady to say she did not know the driver, and face some charges herself.

    • Smhstfu says:

      You can not force anybody to tell you anything

  10. Hmmm says:

    Prints …. Easy arrest. Make it so. Does the perp know one of the police officers.

    • Smhstfu says:

      Assuming police have his prints on file if not that’s pointless

  11. Me, myself and i says:

    what does brown complexion mean? We all know black and white. You won’t offend us.

  12. Say says:

    Smh I have heard it all

  13. Positive Pessimist says:

    In a case like this, the police know the identity of the person, I’m sure. If he hasn’t been arrested before and doesn’t have a mugshot, they would still have a photo of him from the TCD system, I’m sure. Instead of releasing a vague description that could fit a million and one people-especially the items of clothing like he’s still going to be walking around in them (yeah, I know they release that in case someone spotted him at the time but still)-why don’t the police here do what the police do overseas and plaster the person’s face up and say this person is wanted by police for questioning? The police always say they want the public’s help but then give such vague information.

    If you release a person’s identity, their neighbour, former teacher, doctor, boss, whoever could see it in and turn them in. It doesn’t take anyway from the person’s rights and they’re still innocent until proven guilty but enough of this vague description stuff. If we the public are supposed to do our job, give us something to work with here like they do in every other jurisdiction in the world-including the U.K. whose system ours is supposed to be based on. They have no qualms about releasing CCTV footage or names of people they’re looking for-why can’t we???

    i am glad it all over its been to long

  15. mmm says:

    The driver behaved in such a way to suggest to others he had something to answer for, whether it be traffic, civil, or criminal. He made matters worse by driving at the officer hitting him, reversing down a one way street and damaging property. He would have been arrested on one fact alone hitting the officer. He is likely to be in and out of court for a few years to he sorts himself out, his behaviour will affect how and where he will be over the next few years.

  16. Cranberry says:

    That’s why you get the driver out of the car to begin with…

  17. Rada Gast says:

    ” a high rate of speed” no less.
