Chicago police released video Friday of an attack on an officer who Superintendent Eddie Johnson said didn’t draw her firearm for fear of public backlash.
The brutal October 5 beating left the officer with a concussion, bone chips to the shoulder and wrist and a neck injury, according to the Chicago Tribune.
The suspect, 28-year-old Parta Huff, slammed the 17-year veteran officer’s head into the concrete multiple times and ripped out chunks of her hair.
The officers originally responded to the scene after a call about a vehicle that crashed into the front of a liquor store. Huff was the vehicle’s only occupant.
Huff, then on foot, ignored repeated commands to stop after officers arrived. Huff was struck by a TASER twice during the ensuing scuffle.
The suspect, who tested positive for PCP, was charged with attempted murder of a police officer and aggravated battery to a police officer, according to the report.
