Georgia cop runs over black man after mistaking him for suspect — then arrests him
A police officer in Atlanta, Georgia, is being accused of intentionally ramming his car into a man he mistook for a suspect.
According to WSB-TV, the Atlanta Police Department has placed the unidentified officer on leave as it investigates the incident.
Warren Hill said the officer ran him over last week in a parking lot after mistaking him for a domestic violence suspect. Hill admitted that when he saw the police car, he tried to run.
“I was trying to get away from the cops and I was scared of the cops, so I ran,” Hill told WSB-TV. “So they thought I was the suspect and ran me down like a dog or an animal.”
Hill said police realized that he was not the suspect in question, but the officer still arrested him over an outstanding warrant for a broken taillight and failure to appear in court.
“Madness, heartless. I am a human being,” he told WSB-TV. He claimed he suffered various injuries from the incident.
