No Bail For Man Accused Of Hitting Bobby With Auto On DuSable Lake Shore Drive
DOWNTOWN — A man indicted of hitting a Chicago police officer with his auto on DuSable Lake Shore Drive over the weekend has been ordered held without bail.
Around 8p.m. Friday, officers pulled over a motorist in a auto they believed was connected to an irritated battery to a Cook County Sheriff’s police officer, prosecutors said Sunday. As an officer approached the auto’s motorist, the vehicle reversed — striking the officer and breaking his leg, officers said.
The officer also fired his gun, striking the passenger side door of a near vehicle, but nothing was hurt, prosecutors said.
The 23- time-old motorist of the auto, Tajze Mullins, was charged with one felony count of tried first- degree murder, two felony counts of irritated assault to a peace officer, one felony count of gumming identification and one misdemeanor count of escape, according to the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office.
