Feb. 08, 2018
WASHINGTON (AP) — The driver of a truck that police say hit two police officers and a transit worker in Washington, D.C., faces up to 90 years in prison if convicted on all charges.
Prosecutors said 24-year-old Brandon Figures-Mormon hated police and traveled to the Adams Morgan district from his home in Disputanta, a community near Richmond, Virginia, with the intent of at least hurting an officer.
His defense attorney says he lost control of his truck after having a bad reaction to marijuana.
News outlets report a grand jury indicted Figures-Mormon Wednesday on three counts of assault with intent to kill while armed, three counts of aggravated assault while armed, two counts of felony assault on a police officer while armed and other charges related to the June 8 crash.
