Video shows Arizona man running his car into group of police officers

Suspect in custody, cops expected to recover

PHOENIX - ***WARNING: The video above is graphic****

Police have released the video of a man who drove through a group of officers as they were standing outside a Phoenix gas station early Tuesday morning.

According to Phoenix police, the incident occurred just before 2 a.m Tuesday morning.

Three officers were hurt after 44-year-old Marc LaQuon Payne reportedly drove his vehicle at the group, before hitting a patrol car and the front of the store.

Two officers suffered serious injuries, but they don't appear to be life-threatening, according to police. A third officer was able to escape injury, but suffered some minor wounds during a struggle to arrest the suspect.

At this time, the act appears to have been intentional and police suspect impairment was a factor.

Phoenix police chief Joseph Yahner said this was a violent and cowardly act. He went onto say that "we should all be outraged."
