Driver who injured Denver policeman at Ferguson protest arrested

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 03/26/2015 - 07:25
By Keith Coffman DENVER (Reuters) - A motorist who was having a seizure when he critically injured a Denver policeman during a demonstration late last year over the killing of an unarmed black teenager in Missouri was arrested on Wednesday on assault charges, authorities said. Christopher Booker, 42, is being held on suspicion of first-degree assault, vehicular assault, forgery and attempting to influence a public servant, Denver District Attorney Mitch Morrissey told reporters. Morrissey said Booker allegedly concealed his medical history of seizures when he applied for a driver's license, leading to the forgery and influence accusations. Booker was behind the wheel of a sport utility vehicle on Dec. 3 when he plowed into four Denver bicycle officers as they performed traffic and crowd control during a protest march by students from East High School.
