VIDEO: Female Officer Brutally Attacked By Driver Involved In Car Crash

Marcelas Terrell Jones was arrested on multiple charges in connection with the violent assault.

Fort Lauderdale, FL – A Fort Lauderdale police officer was viciously attacked by one of the drivers involved in a crash she was investigating (video below).

The brutal assault occurred just at 2500 Northwest 19th Street just before 4 p.m. on Jan 16, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reported.

Cell phone footage showed the unnamed Fort Lauderdale police officer as she spoke with a man involved in the crash scene.

The man, later identified as 29-year-old Marcelas Terrell Jones, suddenly began punching the officer in the head and upper body, the video showed.

The suspect continued to advance on her as the officer scrambled backwards in a failed attempt to create distance between them.

The officer deployed her Taser, but it appeared to have no effect.

Jones then slammed the officer up against a chain-link fence and pushed her through a gateway,

Two security guards jumped into the fray just before the clip ended.

Additional officers responded to the scene and placed Jones under arrest, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reported.

He was transported to the Broward County Jail on charges of leaving the scene of a crash with property damage, two counts of resisting arrest with violence, and aggravated battery on an officer.

“I’m very concerned based on these allegations,” Broward County Assistant State’s Attorney Eric Linder told the South Florida Sun Sentinel. “He strangled the arresting officer.”

Jones’ bond was set at $25,200.

The officer did not suffer any serious injuries as a result of the attack, and is expected to make a full recovery.

You can watch cell phone footage of the officer’s encounter with Jones in the video below:

The usual suspect beating on a woman. Wonder where he learned to do that? It's too bad there's not more video so we can see what if anything precipitated the attack or if he just decided it would be a good idea to start hitting her in the face.

I''m glad that she will be alright physically.

For the resident trolls who will undoubtedly blame the officer: No.

Am I the one that has a problem with $25,000 bail? This guy has issues and is a threat to everyone and needs to cool his heels in jail while he awaits trial.

No, you are not the only one, Jimmyd2! I am disgusted that the bail was so low! It is assault on a police officer, the bail should have been a lot higher!

Well I keep saying female officers should not patrol alone and in this case, steer clear of black males, However, I am now of the opinion Tasers should be banned from Law Enforcement altogether. I have watched far too many videos right here, at this site, showing the negative consequences of using a taser instead of a gun. Now a criminal or SJW may cry foul, but I feel our LEOs come first and don't need the false sense of security those things give. Sure they work SOMETIMES... that's just not good enough in a life and death situation.

Seven priors mugshots for Marcelas Terrell Jones here:

Most prior charges are relatively minor, but he does have a prior misdemeanor battery charge and worst is that dude has procreated and failed to pay child support.

Why was his bail set so low? You only have to come up with1% now. He brutally attacked a LEO I just don't understand why these thugs are in and out like a revolving door!

Once again a journalists misrepresentation. I see a crazed Baboon not a man. That attack was absolute justification for the Officer to have shot the animal to death. Her restraint in using the Taser could have cost the Officer her life.

forget the taser, this isn't a mental patient or a compliance thing.... you're solo and you experience an unprovoked attack, shoot him. End the threat. Send a clear message.

You know, it is funny that the bright one has not commented on this encounter. I just had a two day running argument with the numbskull about racism and generalities. He called me out for telling him to drop dead and asked why I wouldn't call out the racists on here. And yet, here it is a chance for the dumb POS to actually comment on something that is obvious as hell, but mr outraged hasn't said a thing. So typical of left wing hacks, they point fingers at everyone else, but can't acknowledge when someone does something obviously unprovoked and so manly.

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot is with taking photos? If you cannot help the officer, call 9-1-1. If you have the tools, go stop the attack.

Sadly as bad as it all is and it is terrible she was beaten. That being said she needs not be in the field at her size and weight as was the run going to her aid, neither seemed fit to handle even the slightest resistant given. All in favor of all who want to be an officer. If you really want to do this be fit enough, your life and the lives of others depend on you.This also goes for Fire, first responders and ambulance personnel.

she's white, he's black. if she would have shot him the NAACP, Jessie Jackson, BLM, and every black with a hatred for whites would be screaming for her life served up on a platter. as it is, I'm sure they'll find fault in the way she didn't/did something to set the douche bag off.
