Video shows Orlando police officer struck in alleged hit-and-run

ORLANDO, Fla. -- The Orlando Police Department released video Tuesday of the moment when a police officer was struck by a vehicle he had stopped.

CBS affiliate WKMG reports that the incident occurred around 2:45 a.m. Monday. Orlando police said Officer William Anderson was working "extra duty" when he conducted a traffic stop on a silver four-door sedan.

In the video, the front of the police car can be seen speeding toward a car stopped at a red light. Anderson, who Orlando police said was responding to reports of shots fired in the neighborhood, then gets out of the police car with his gun drawn, and can be heard yelling, "Put it in park."

As Anderson approaches the driver's side of the car, a passenger gets out and runs off. Anderson, pointing his gun at the car, can then be seen moving in front of the vehicle. Then the car moves forward, striking Anderson.

The officer fired his gun three times as he hit the ground, but the driver did not stop, police said. Anderson was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The suspect, a 17-year-old, was taken to Orlando Regional Medical Center and remains in the hospital, but police have not said what his injuries were or how he was tracked down. Police said Monday afternoon that the vehicle involved was found in Gotha, Fla., burned, with the windshield shattered.

Detectives said they have also identified two other people who they believe were in the vehicle.

The teen suspect was arrested Tuesday and charged with attempted second-degree murder on a law enforcement officer and resisting an officer with violence. He will be taken to the Juvenile Assessment Center after his release from the hospital.

WKMG reports that the parents of the teens in of the car are claiming excessive force by the police.

It's not the first excessive force case involving Anderson. In December, he and three other Orlando police officers were sued by a man who claimed he was cooperating with police in 2012 when Anderson pepper-sprayed him and shot him with a stun gun, while the other officers tackled, punched and kicked him.

That case has not yet been resolved, according to court documents.
