    Scuffle With Police, Perp Tries to get Officers Pistol

    Looks like the criminals are getting more violent. He must be one scary dude that's all I can say. Good thing he didn't get to use the Officers weapon.

    Two officers hurt in making arrest

    HUNTINGTON ó Two city police officers needed hospital treatment following reports of counterfeiting at a downtown bar.

    Michael Lee Conner Jr., 34, of Wheeling, W.Va., was incarcerated at 2:25 a.m. Wednesday charged with felony counterfeiting and attempt to disarm a police officer, along with two misdemeanor counts of battering police and one count of fleeing.

    Criminal complaints allege Conner passed $450 in counterfeit cash just after midnight Wednesday at Jakeís Bar. The payment consisted of nine $50 bills. The bar is located in the 1400 block of 4th Avenue.

    Complaints further charge that Conner ran from the scene. Police caught up to him in the 1300 block of 5th Avenue, but that is where he repeatedly tried to take a Huntington Police officerís duty pistol. He was eventually successful.

    That officer received a serious head injury, while a fellow Huntington Police officer received injuries to his hand. Both received emergency medical treatment, the complaints state. Their injuries were suffered as Conner repeatedly used his hands and fits to hit the officers.

    Connerís bond was set at $75,000

    After he took the weapon, he should have been shot by the other officer! All civility ends when they take an officer weapon.

    One of the realities of the street is that it is not infrequently the case that if a thug thinks he can take you and/or your partner, it's on like Donkey Kong.

    Agree 100%. This fool is lucky. There have been two fatal shootings of people involved with the cops here in my hometown recently. Both tried unsuccessfully to take an Officer's weapon and were shot by other responding Officers.

    Lucky, really, really lucky.

    Should have gotten the business end of the officers' Glock.

    Agreed.

    Both officers are very lucky to be alive.

    Good to hear they're alive, and I hope there is no permanent injury from the head injury.

    I guess this possibly makes an argument for carrying a BUG as well, assuming the officer was still able to stay in the fight at the point he was disarmed.

    He looks like one crazy SOB who does NOT give a crap about life or death.
