Md. officer convicted in assault of suspect

WASHINGTON — A Prince George’s County police officer has been convicted of assault after he hit a suspect with his police cruiser.

Dashcam video showed Officer Juan Hernandez, an 11-year veteran of the force, chasing down a suspect with his police cruiser and hitting the man in Hyattsville last June.

Though the video showed the suspect — 23-year-old Ulrich Boaoutou — being thrown onto the police cruiser’s windshield by the force of the hit, prosecutors said he did not need medical attention.

If they run, use whatever means are avaiable. No officer should face charges if this is the case.
