    Unconfirmed but, Im hearing that it was @mikerd400.

    I posted a little about it in the EMS thread @Hedge36, says it was him.

    I dont know if info has been released on the officers name and I cant say too much regarding what I saw on scene. I know he was hurt pretty bad, he was ran over/ ran off, intentionally.

    Individual was caught, I know on scene he had multiple injuries and was largely unresponsive.

    does anyone have any further info that can confirm if it was mike (on scene they were calling that name). Also, if it was, what can we see about doing to help.
    I know as a state officer he would be pretty well cared for, but we might want to show support if it is him.

    I saw your post on the EMS thread. Sounds like attempted murder and serious injuries. Fox News reported the officer's name as Michael Ericson. If it is confirmed he's an Inmate here, I am sure that the ADV community will offer up all the support we can muster. Of course even if he is not an Inmate, my thoughts are with him for a speedy and full recovery.

    Last report was critical after surgery.

    Can anyone who knows mikerd400 confirm or deny? (Now that a name has been released)

    Thanks @Hedge36

    My wife works at UCD. She was wondering why there was so many LEOs in the hospital yesterday.
    Positive vibe being sent.

    I am grateful to the firefighter who was first on scene. She was able to radio for assistance and render first aid.

    Mike is a good man and I pray for his recovery and for the strength his family will need as he recovers.

    They got the asshat in the pickup though? FML.

    All thoughts and best wishes to Mike and his for a speedy recovery. And that the person responsible is passed around like currency when he gets sent down.
