The 22-year-old man prosecuted for seriously injuring a police officer after a refusal to comply in Sochaux (Doubs) was indicted and placed in provisional detention, we learned Saturday from the prosecutor's office of Montbéliard.
A judicial investigation of the charges of attempted murder on a person holding public authority and refusal to comply was opened against the accused, said the prosecutor's office, confirming initial information from the East Republican. The young man was jailed around 19 p.m. on Saturday.
Thursday a police officer of the Anti-Crime Brigade (BAC) of the Montbéliard police station was seriously injured "while he participated, with two colleagues, in the arrest of a 22-year-old man" already convicted and the subject of a search warrant for escape, said the public prosecutor Friday.
The officer suffers from several fractures
One of the police officers had used his service weapon three times, shooting the wanted person in the hip. In parallel, an investigation was opened for "violence with weapons" in relation to these shootings.
The accused would, according to the first elements of the investigation, reverse with his vehicle, hitting the policeman who was trying to prevent him from fleeing.
