    Two Cincinnati Police officers injured overnight

    MOUNT AUBURN – Two Cincinnati police officers were injured early this morning when a car struck the back of their parked police van on William Howard Taft Road at Highland Avenue.

    Police Capt. Gene Hamann and Sgt. William Suter were standing in front of the van when the car struck it.

    Both officers were taken to University Hospital Medical Center. Hamann, 57, suffered serious injuries, while Suter was treated and released, police said.
    The driver of the car, Joshua Munchel, 27, of Madeira, refused an breath test, but showed signs of intoxication, the accident report says.
    Munchel has been charged with two counts each of aggravated vehicular assault and vehicular assault and is being held in the Hamilton County Justice Center.

    Munchel received minor injuries and refused aid.

    The traffic accident was the culmination of bizarre events stemming from police responding to a domestic violence call on Hilton Place in Mount Auburn.

    When the officers arrived at 12:22 a.m., Galia Youmans, 36, of Mount Auburn, was laying in the middle of Hilton near the intersection of Highland Avenue and Taft.
    Her boyfriend, Michael D. Cody, 26, of Mount Auburn, is accused of running over Youmans with his car after an argument.

    Police arrested Cody and charged him with felonious assault and resisting arrest.

    Officers called for additional help in subduing Cody. A police van that arrived at the scene accidentally grazed Youmans with the underside of its front bumper, flaring the already chaotic situation.

    As Officer Barbara Ruff ran to help the woman in the road, the woman’s 16-year-old son grabbed the police officer by the jacket and began screaming that she had “just run over his mama,” a police report said. The teen was arrested on a charge of assaulting a police officer.

    Meanwhile, while police were trying to get the situation under control, Munchel was rambling up William Howard Taft in his 1990 Volvo. At the corner of Taft and Highland, Munchel was accused of slamming into the van, injuring the two police officers who were standing in front of the van trying to jump-start the engine.

    Youmans suffered minor injuries and was taken to University Hospital, police said.

    This situation just seems really screwed up. Hopefully the Captain will recover and be ok.

    Nice. Run over the victim, stall the van, then get hit by some idiot most likely driving drunk.... Sounds like a pretty bad night. Here's hoping the officers and the victim are OK.
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    I heard this on WLW this morning... I would hate to be in charge of this mess. What a cluster. Cpt. Hamann is still in the hospital and Sgt. Suter is at home already. I dont know how the other lady is.

    Sounds like it was Mr Murphy's birthday. How many "oops!"s can you fit into a story?

    This call must be in the Murphy's Law hall of fame. Could any thing else go wrong. Sure wouldn't want to try and explain this to the boss.

    The Chief is an old hand at hearing these types of things.
