A group was arrested and accused of attempting to kill an officer after he allegedly swerved into an Azusa police officer on a patrol motorcycle, sparking a chase as two passengers threw objects at the officer early Friday morning. The Driver swerved into the marked patrol motorcycle as both vehicles drove along the westbound 210 Freeway near the Sunflower Avenue exit in Glendora. The officer at first thought it was an accident until objects started being thrown at him and the vehicle kept going.
The officer attempted to pull the vehicle over as passengers continued throwing items at him. But the driver allegedly refused to stop and objects kept getting thrown. From there, the officer started pursuing the vehicle and was joined by a West Covina officer who witnessed the incident. The vehicle later exited in the city of Azusa. The driver entered the yard of a home, crashing the vehicle into a wall on the property before he got out and tried to run from officers, according to police. He was arrested following a brief foot pursuit.
Two passengers inside the vehicle were arrested at the scene of the crash. The driver is being held on a $1 million dollar bail and stands accused of attempted homicide of an officer. The Passengers are also being held on suspicion of attempted homicide of an officer.
