A man has been arrested on suspicion of intentionally driving his car into three Denver police officers during protests on Saturday nights.
The officers were seriously injured after they were struck by a fast-moving vehicle, according to Denver Police.
Anthony Knapp, 37, was arrested the following day and is being held for first-degree assault and attempted first-degree assault. He was tracked down by detectives tracing scattered pieces of his car and posting a Crime Stoppers bulletin.
The ongoing investigation is among the first to be opened involving attacks against police during protests across the US.
The Denver Police sent CNN their Statement of Probable Cause saying the officers were in full uniform standing next to a fully marked Denver Police vehicle, when a dark sedan traveling at a "high rate of speed, swerved toward the officers and as a result, struck three of the officers with the car."
The officers were transported to the Denver Health Medical Center in an ambulance, according to the statement. One sustained a fractured leg and the other two sustained "substantial risk of protracted loss or impairment of the function of any part or organ of the body."
