[WATCH] Shocking Video Shows Vehicular Attack on Indiana Police

Recommended Posts



On Tuesday, after deliberating for an hour and a half, an Indiana jury handed down a guilty verdict for a Muncie man who attempted to run over a pair of police officers with his car after attempting to flee a traffic stop.


The Indy Star reports:


Charles K. Dinkins, 48, of the 1200 block of South Franklin Street, was convicted of attempted aggravated battery, criminal recklessness, resisting law enforcement and leaving the scene of the accident.


He will be sentenced by Delaware Circuit Court 1 Judge Marianne Vorhees on Aug. 23. The most serious charge, attempted aggravated battery, is a Level 3 felony carrying up to 16 years in prison.


On Monday, Deputy Prosecutor Steve Sneed presented video of the incident from the officers’ body cameras to the jury. The video showed the shocking events after Dinkins fled from the officers during a traffic stop about 2:30 a.m. on March 24, 2017.


He crashed his Chevrolet Cavalier through a gate and drove into a fenced-enclosed parking lot at the U.S. Post Office along West Memorial Drive, striking two postal vehicles.


The patrolmen – Sean Dennis and Jonathan Thornton – left their police SUV after a female passenger jumped out of Dinkins’ car and fell in the parking lot.


The officers fired gunshots at the Cavalier as it passed near them, and the woman, at a high rate of speed.


Both officers testified Monday they believed their lives were in danger. More shots were fired when Dinkins drove near the officers again, then left the lot through the hole he had created in the enclosure.





Following a thorough investigation by Indiana State Police, Chief Deputy Prosecutor Eric Hoffman announced on June 23, 2017, the two officers would not face charges for their use of firearms in response to the attack.
