Detroit cop injured by wrong-way driver

Officer Charles Armor, a 17-year-veteran, is listed in serious condition with internal bleeding and broken bones

By PoliceOne Staff

Detroit television station WJBK reported that an officer who had been working a traffic assignment in the “Greektown” section of town was struck by an unruly, wrong-way driver. Officer Charles Armor, a 17-year-veteran, is now listed in serious condition, having reportedly suffered injuries including internal bleeding and broken bones.

Witnesses said the scene early Sunday morning was “pure chaos” and that the driver of the silver Ford Focus was throwing things from his vehicle, arguing with people on the street, and driving the wrong way down a one-way street.

According to the WJBK report, at some point during the lengthy incident that had the driver out of his vehicle arguing with pedestrians at least once, Officer Armor stood in front of the car to make him stop. This is when the man slammed into officer Armor “and threw him several feet.”

Bystanders reportedly then pulled the violator from his vehicle, and “beat him up.”
