Fla. cop injured in hit-and-run memorized tag; suspect arrested quickly
By Joel Marino
LAUDERHILL, Fla. — Lying on the ground injured after a fleeing suspect hit him with a car, a Lauderhill police officer took a quick glance at the speeding vehicle and memorized the tag number, authorities said.
That tag and a description of the car helped the officer's colleagues find the suspected hit-and-run driver just an hour after the crash, said Capt. Constance Stanley, a Lauderhill police spokeswoman. The suspect was identified as Clarence Anderson, 30, of North Miami. Charges are still pending an investigation.
