    IMHO, assault and battery of a police officer should be bumped up a notch or two in the felony scheme of things.

    Man charged in assault after 2 officers injured

    Two Roanoke police officers were injured in a struggle with a suspect after a traffic stop Tuesday night, police said.
    Officer C.W. Burnett stopped a vehicle for driving with its headlights off in the 300 block of Orange Avenue Northwest just after 10:20 p.m., according to police spokeswoman Aisha Johnson.

    The driver, Daniel Edward Sloan, 44, of Roanoke fled and was pursued by Burnett, who called for assistance. Sloan was the vehicle's only occupant.

    Burnett and another officer, R.H. McNiff, caught up to Sloan several yards away in Washington Park, Johnson said. A struggle ensued and all three were hurt.

    The officers were taken to Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital for unspecified injuries, Johnson said. They were released Wednesday morning.

    Sloan was treated, released from the hospital and taken to jail, Johnson said. He was charged with assault on a police officer, resisting arrest, giving false information and driving on a suspended operator's license.

    McNiff has been injured in the line of duty at least twice before, according to Roanoke Times archives.

    In May 2007, he was injured when he jumped over a wall while chasing a suspect. The nature and severity of his injuries were not released, but he was hospitalized for two days.

    In December 2003, McNiff tripped over a wall while chasing an individual suspected of assaulting several police officers. That incident required McNiff to undergo at least two surgeries.

    I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.
