An officer with the California Highway Patrol was stabbed Friday during a traffic stop on an interstate in the Central Valley of the Golden State.
According to the Sacramento Bee, the officer was transported to a hospital nearly 45 miles from where the attack took place. There, he was treated for serious but non-life-threatening injuries.
The assailant—identified as 25-year-old Haile Neil—was stopped for allegedly driving more than 100 miles per hour.
The officer—whose name has not been released but who has reportedly been with the agency for three years—has subsequently been released from the hospital.
