That's crazy. I'm alert for a lot of different possibilities, but never considered that.

Remember while in 3 different academies, FTO, and as a Rookie being told to always look-up. This puts a whole new meaning to that. Wow!!!

That is definitely not a good night for that officer. I didn't see any wind either. Looks like the tree just got heavy and came out of the ground. No cracking or anything just plop. Get better soon officer.
