An Alabama police officer was clubbed with his own gun during a traffic stop, authorities say.
The robbery detective stopped a maroon 2012 GMC Yukon last week in eastern Birmingham and told the suspect to stay in his vehicle. Instead, the suspect got out, jumped the officer, grabbed his gun and clubbed him with it.
Images posted to social media mock the wounded cop. One post read, “Pistol whipped his a** to sleep.”
The suspect, identified as 34-year-old Janard Cunningham, fled, but was arrested by police shortly thereafter. Cunningham has a long rap sheet, including a 2006 assault conviction.
