Officer Injured After Getting Run Over During Foot Pursuit

Yesterday morning at approximately 01:30 hours Boston Police Officers responded to the area of Dudley Street and Harrison Ave for the report of a disturbance or fight where someone may have had a firearm. Officers arrived on scene and two males immediately after seeing them took off on foot.

An Officer was able to catch one of the suspects in the intersection where a struggle ensued. During the struggle the suspect was able to wrestle the Officer into a moving vehicle in the intersection and the Officer’s foot and leg were caught under the vehicle. Other officers arrived on scene and took the male into custody.

Boston EMS responded to the scene and rendered aid to the injured officer before transporting him to a local area hospital with somewhat serious but non-life-threatening injuries. The driver of the vehicle stayed on scene and was extremely cooperative.

The suspect that fled continued to act up even after being placed in the back of a patrol car, screaming, crying and attempting to kick out the windows. He eventually was transferred to another vehicle and transported back to the station. While being moved between units the suspect could be heard making threats to Officers, crying loudly and stating that he was a member of the infamous Sinaloa Cartel.

The second man was stopped by police and questions however it became apparent that he was just a little special. As of this morning the Officer was released from the hospital and is expected to make a full recovery. No further information is available at this time.
