Drug Suspect Rams Texas Officer, Punches Him
October 10, 2013
A drug suspect rammed an unmarked San Antonio Police vehicle and punched an undercover officer while attempting to flee a vehicle stop early Tuesday.
The incident began after officers tracked Dionicio Trevino and Nicholas Arevalos to a Marriott Courtyard on Northeast Loop 410. Trevino had been under investigation for dealing meth, reports the Express-News.
Officers attempted to pull over his 2010 Chrysler 300, when Trevino rammed the unmarked police vehicle. Officers caught up with Trevino, who refused to put his hands in the air. During a struggle, he punched an officer before he was subdued.

I have never understood the wisdom of using a lone single officer to surveil a known dangerous suspect. This is always a bad idea but it is done throughout the country. Any suspect that any agency has prior knowlege that they might become dangerous should always use multiple officers for undercover operations. Suveillance of drug suspects should always assumed to be armed and should be assumed to be dangerous, murder suspects should be treated as armed and dangerous and proper back up should be immediately available. The FBI has learned these lessons the hard way and so have many police agencies. There is no justification to allow any human being to be placed in a situation where they may become harmed in any way just to save a few dollars.
