South Fulton police are searching for suspects involved in what they call a vicious attack on an officer during a street racing gathering Saturday night, the same group officials say made their way into Atlanta to continue the illegal performances.
According to a Facebook post by the department, they responded to calls on Saturday night about “individuals unlawfully performing reckless stunt driving” on Camp Creek Parkway near Campbellton Road.
As officers attempted to clear the road, one of the “suspects” jumped on the hood of a patrol vehicle. SFPD also claims that several people used objects, such as a speed limit sign with the pole still attached, to damage their patrol vehicle.
Additionally, the people in the crowd shot fireworks and green laser pointers at the officer.
After attacking the SFPD officer, the same individuals reportedly traveled into the city of Atlanta to continue their reckless behavior. Ten individuals were arrested by Atlanta police officers.
