In the current climate of crazy, a police officer never knows what to expect when they show up for duty.
I doubt that Fort Lawn Police Chief David Hayes was expecting what happened to him when he arrived as backup to one of his officers. Sitting in the back of the patrol car was Amilleo D. Mingo, being detained as a result of a call of a man acting crazy. The Chief was allegedly attacked by Mingo, after the subject crashed through the patrol car window.
Hayes was bitten badly in the process and suffered other injuries as well. Chief Hayes was taken to the hospital and is undergoing an evaluation.
Officials say witnesses helped subdue Mingo before he was taken into custody and taken to the hospital. Upon discharge, Mingo will be housed in the Chester County Detention Center and warrants will be requested for assault on a police officer.
Most officers would rather be hit or kicked rather than bitten. The potential for diseases and infection go through the roof when you mix saliva with an open wound. I’m sure the subject will be run through a battery of tests before he is released to the detention center.
Was this a ploy to set up an insanity plea, another bath salts incident, or is Mingo missing a few screws? Your guess is as good as mine.
Get well Chief Hayes, and let’s upgrade those patrol car windows!
