Refusal to comply in Essonne: a municipal police officer is run over

Hectic afternoon for the municipal police of Longjumeau in Essonne. A motorist was arrested and taken into custody on May 25 after refusing to comply, during which he ran over the foot of an official.

It all starts this Saturday afternoon. A Longjumeau “PM” patrol was circulating in the Vigne aux Loups activity zone when the agents saw “a vehicle driving at very high speed in the opposite direction”, according to a person familiar with the matter. This is a BMW sedan.

The police asked the driver to stop, to no avail. A chase then follows with sirens blaring in the streets of Longjumeau, during which the motorist takes all the risks. Even blocking his way, the driver manages to get rid of the agents chasing him, using the sidewalks to escape.

It was finally at the Champarts crossroads, between Chilly-Mazarin and Massy, ​​that the man on board the BMW stopped his race. An official comes down to question him: the driver refuses, puts his sedan into reverse. The officer then sees the driver run over his foot, causing him to fall.

In the process, two other police officers take out their service weapons to force the man to turn off the engine. He finally complies. Aged around forty, he was arrested and taken into police custody.

However, the motorist was admitted to hospital after asking to see a doctor, who decided to declare him unfit for police custody. The forty-year-old was therefore released this weekend. The investigation does not stop, however, and the man could soon be summoned again to explain his flight. Finally, the injured police officer was prescribed 15 days of total incapacity for work (ITT).
