Man Attacks Cops

A St. Charles police officer was attacked by a suspect during a traffic stop on Friday.

St. Charles, MO – A man who broke a St. Charles police officer’s nose during a traffic stop on Friday also sustained fractures of his own, police said.

A second officer was exposed to communicable diseases that the suspect told officers he had, KMOV reported.

The incident took place at approximately 4:35 p.m., when St. Charles Police Department (SCPD) Officer Tyler Christeson stopped a vehicle for a turn signal violation, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Aaron Summers, 35, was a passenger in the vehicle, and police soon discovered that he had active warrants for a traffic offense and for failing to appear in court in another jurisdiction.

When the officers informed Summers about the warrant, the suspect told them they couldn’t arrest him because the warrants were from Hazelwood.

He resisted the attempts by Officer Christeson and Officer Philip Henry to take him into custody, resulting in one of the officers deploying his Taser, KMOV reported.

Summers squared off with police before punching and kicking Officer Henry in the head.

Police forced Summers to the ground, where he ignored repeated commands to stop resisting. Instead, the combative man continued to kick, and attempted to roll over and stand up.

The team of officers eventually subdued him, and discovered he had been armed with a knife throughout the altercation.

Officer Henry sustained a broken nose during the fight, while a second officer was exposed to communicable diseases that Summers claimed to have.

Police said that Summers was treated for two fractured bones in his eye socket, and has been released from the hospital, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

He was charged with felony first-degree assault, felony resisting arrest, misdemeanor fourth-degree assault, and misdemeanor property damage.

Summers was being held on a $25,000 cash-only bond.

They should release the video. I'd watch. Sounds like the passenger should not have id'd himself and he could have avoided this whole situation. Also sounds like the passenger knew about the warrants and should have gotten them cleared -- another way to have avoided this whole situation.

This guy found out the hard way how the officers react when he resisted arrest and fought them. Love the raccoon eyes!
Praying for both officers - I was spat on once by an angry business owner-fortunately he didn't have anything contagious.

He will probably sue saying he was just defending himself. I started police work on 1967, in those days suspects fought, almost always lost but they seldom bitched about it and no lawsuits. The only time I ever heard a complaint is if they were handcuffed then assaulted, and they did have a grievance then. Sure changed nowadays; if you yell at someone you have to write a use of force statement. So sad. The work doesn't get done.
