    AZ - Phoenix Arizona driver hits officers, faces attempted murder charges

    Arizona driver hits officers, faces attempted murder charges

    A man is facing three counts of attempted first-degree murder for driving toward a group of Phoenix police officers outside a gas station, striking two of them, authorities said.
    Three officers were injured after Marc LaQuon Payne apparently drove his vehicle at the officers before hitting a patrol car and crashing into the front of the QuikTrip store around 2 a.m. Tuesday.

    "We are confident that this is an intentional act," Phoenix Police Chief Joseph Yahner said at an afternoon news conference. "Our officers were targeted. I'm outraged by this incident. This stuff needs to stop."

    Police released a store surveillance video of the incident. It shows a vehicle backing out of a parking space, circling the parking lot and then accelerating toward the three police officers.

    The video is terrible to watch.The officer who flew through the air actually hit the glass of the storefront and immediately jumped right in to help apprehend the perp. And he is the one who is in the hospital. A mere concussion, you know. His first day on the job, too . . . he's quite a guy!

    The perp deliberately drove the car straight at the officers, and all three officers responded as a team. I am so proud of them and so glad that none of them were killed.

    Sadly, this didn't get much notice, did it?

    I am thankful all three of these officers survived and I hope the officers that were injured will fully recover.

    No, it didn't get much notice at all, which is unfortunate. What's amazing (and commendable, in my opinion) is that the officers took the perp down while they were injured and without shooting him, deploying a stun gun "multiple times" to finally subdue him (source). In my opinion, the officers showed incredible restraint, all things considered.

    Why in the H*** did that nut do this? This takes mean and stupid to a whole new level! Very happy to hear the officers and the people in the store are all going to be OK.
