Police Car Drives Through Crowd at Tacoma, WA Drag Race

At least two people were injured when a police officer responding to a report of a street race plowed his car through a crowd of pedestrians that had gathered around him and were pounding on the car’s windows in downtown Tacoma on Saturday night, reports the Associated Press. Video posted on social media shows the police car hitting several people and running over at least one person. City Manager Elizabeth Pauli said the officer involved will be placed on leave and the Pierce County Force Investigation Team will handle the case. Interim Police Chief Mike Ake released a statement saying he was concerned about another “use of deadly force incident,” and promised his department’s full cooperation in the investigation.
