Four police officers knocked down in Saône-et-Loire by a drug-positive driver

After a chase between Beaune and Saint-Marcel (town located near Chalon-sur-Saône) during the night of August 11 to 12, a driver who had taken narcotics and refused to stop at a police control, overthrew four police officers, according to France Bleu Bourgogne on August 13. They were slightly injured.

It all started with a “banal road check in the Beaune agglomeration”, according to the radio. The thirty-something at the wheel of his car would then have refused to comply. The chase with the police in Beaune lasted around 40 kilometres. According to the account of France Bleu, the driver was “surrounded [par] the police of Beaune, supported by the gendarmerie and the BAC of Chalon-sur-Saône”.

“He then does not hesitate to start a reverse gear and intentionally overthrow first two police officers from the BAC, then two other members of the police force”, continues the media. The police had tried to stop the vehicle by firing firearms.

“The man was already unfavorably known to the police. The investigation was entrusted to the judicial police of Dijon”, also writes France Bleu.

No serious injuries are to be deplored, but the police would suffer from attacks “on the hips, back and arms”, the agents having “been thrown onto the vehicles”, according to the delegate of the Alliance police nationale union in Saône-et- Loire, Florence Berthaud, contacted byThe Dispatch.
