Detroit Police Car Drives Through Swarming Mob As Protesters Cling To Hood (Video)

(Gateway Pundit) – A Detroit police SUV drove through a swarming mob of protesters Sunday night who tried to block the police car and then hung on the hood as the officer drove through the mob to escape down the street.

A second police SUV followed. The attack by protesters came as police, who had been escorting the protesters, tried to redirect the Black Lives Matter march away from a busy street. One police car reportedly had its rear window smashed in.

Excerpt via The Detroit News:

Police Chief James Craig said the officer who drove a police vehicle through a crowd of protesters Sunday night did so because the officer thought “they were being fired upon.”…

…The protest started out peacefully with about 350 people in Southwest Detroit calling for immigrant rights and an end to police brutality coming together. However, around 9:30 p.m., a police SUV tried to re-direct the march toward Dix Road and away from Vernor Highway, to avoid high amounts of traffic.

Craig said the protesters did not want to follow the direction of the police, and 20 to 30 of them began surrounding the SUV.

The officer slowly tried moving the vehicle in an effort to disperse the crowd around them. When the officer heard the shattering of the rear window, the officer drove off going 25 miles per hour, Craig said. The video shows people on the hood of the SUV and falling to the ground as the officer drove off.

No one was seriously injured, Craig said…

…A video was shown at the press conference of another police SUV being rushed as loud banging can be heard as protesters banged on a second police vehicle.

Craig said a woman blocked the second police vehicle with her motorized bike, and at one point, ran into the driver’s side of the SUV…

Monday afternoon Detroit Police Chief James Craig played dash cam video at a press conference where he said officers thought they were being fired upon.
