September 15, 2009  | 

A New Orleans police officer mowed down by a carjacking suspect he was trying to apprehend last week is still recovering from a fractured arm, the commander of the New Orleans Police Department's 2nd District said Tuesday.

Officer Vincent Williams, a nine-year veteran, was injured on Sept. 9, when he and other 2nd District task force officers confronted Curtis Tassin, 20.
